Okay...this is a good one! I know I ranted about Angel's Gate 2006 Riesling a little while ago (and I absolutely love it) but I believe we have a serious rival here in the 2007 "Dr.L" Loosen Brothers Riesling from Germany. It is fan-tastic!
This wine has the same intensity as the Angel's Gate as well as the same complexity. There's nothing subtle about this wine because it packs a punch with a full boquet of fruit followed by a pleasing snap of acid on the finish with just the right level of sweetness as a counter.
Green apple, pear and melon are evident and there is slight carbonation to add crispness. It is a sweet Riesling, so if you opt for a dry version of this variety, you may want to pass this beautiful wine by. That would be a shame however because this wine can be enjoyed for exactly what it is, a sweet Riesling.
At $15.00 a crack you can't go wrong with this wine. I prefer my whites nice and cold because it accentuates the crispness. That's exactly how I enjoyed this kick ass Riesling which I have added to my list of favorites!!
