Loosen Bros. Dr. L Riesling 2013, Mosel, Germany: Love it! There's simply no better value white wine on the shelf. Lime blossom gorgeous. The alcohol is refreshingly low, yet this is no wimpy wine: it's packed with flavour. Perfect as an aperitif or companion to many dishes. Some terrific white pear and lime blossom on the finish of this Qualit├Ątswein (Q.B.A.) wine. Try it with just about anything, but start with seafood or a medium curry. Winemaker Ernie Loosen makes a range of wines, and this is his entry-level offering. It's spectacular for the price. Drink: 2013-2018. 599274 8.50% MS 750 mL  $13.95 Score: 90/100.
