2013 Dr L Riesling
Availability: Wide distribution. This price is from Zyn.ca
Assessed by: Keith Robinson
Tasted: September 2014
Product Details: Mosel Valley, Germany 8.5% ABV, Riesling
Ernst Loosen is one of the giants of the wine world making some of the greatest white wines anywhere. The Dr L Riesling is his non estate, entry level offering and is always an amazing value. When good, Mosel Riesling is on a tight balance beam of fruit, minerality, acidity and sweetness. 2013 was a tough year in the Mosel and that shows in this tasting. Still a worthwhile value, the 2013 Dr L is one of Loosen's weaker efforts.
The tasting: Soft nose of apple juice and stone fruits. Palate is medium sweet and the acidity lags. Very quaff-able foil to light spicy foods or guests with a sweet tooth.
Food pairing: Sushi, especially rolls with avocado. The sweetness will balance the rich avocado and hit of wasabi; the light flavours match the fish. Thai cuisine or light appetizers. Avoid heavy fare such as curries; they will overwhelm this wine.
When to drink, if not with food: Watching a Hugh Grant or Fred Astaire film.
Reading pair: Far Side cartoon collection
