This Friday the start of the Easter weekend I have opened the 2013 Dr. L Loosen Bros. Riesling an 8.5% Alcohol off-dry leaning toward sweet.

The nose has beautiful fruit of apricot, pear, Meyer lemon, pineapple, inner tube rubber, ginger and lanolin.

On the palate the fruit reveals the meyer lemon, apricot, nectarine, honey crisp apple and honey.

This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity that moves into a pleasant fruit extended finish. An easily quaffable wine that will be gone before you know it. Happy Easter, please be safe enjoying yourself. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Goes well with spicy stir frys but is amazing with curry. The taste changes completely and takes the heat from your mouth.

Not as good as previous years... But can't argue with the price.

Quite acceptable qualitätswein. Nothing to make me stand up and shout out for, but perfectly between the categories of "is this a crisp and minerally joy? or a dessert syrup waiting to be boiled to its essence? It had that syrup factor but the petulance of the bubbles and acid say otherwise. Lots of peach, some ripe melon, a hint of lemon and maybe cucumber plus slate--y soil. That's what I get from this. Would love to taste some other Loosen examples and see what's what.
