Vintages Wine Panel: Dr. L is the exceptional entry-level Mosel Riesling made by the dynamic Ernst Loosen. If you are a Riesling newbie, this is an excellent place to begin. It shows all the bright fruitiness and refreshing acidity one should expect from the grape. Wrapped up in a very easy-drinking style, it can be enjoyed as a sipper or as a very versatile food partner. My note: This is a favourite of so many people I know and for good reason: packed with flavour, floral notes and melon essence. Light- to medium-bodied and low in alcohol.

Riesling food pairings: mildly spiced seafood pasta dish.

Sweet and yummy.
Sara M - WSET Advanced reviewed this wine as follows:

This full-bodied gem showcases notes of grapefrut, green apple and apricot. Lots of structure in the body without appearing too heavy on the palate. This would pair well with turkey, patios and girl's nights out or in!

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
