Pale lemon with pronounced stone fruit and citrus aromas. On the palate flavors of apple, pear and citrus with vivid acidity, minerality and spice. Medium finish ending dry with fresh fruit and a touch of stony mineral notes.

Energetic and crisp. Classic Alsatian fruit with a touch of honey.

Aging nicely. Enjoyed braising with and drinking this lovely balanced riesling. The years have taken the edge off of its bracing acidity and added a hint of honeyed character.

Fresh grapey aromas with Bath Talc. Light to medium weight palate. Finishes bone dry (12.5% Alc) with mouth puckering acidity. Not dissimilar to a young Australian Riesling. Tough to drink after a 2015 Dr Loosen with residual sweetness (8.5% Alc). With time the acidity tamed. Long future ahead.

An unbelievably good value entry level riesling - Great, stony mineral touch with underripe apricot and some toasted nuttiness, interesting but restrained. In the mouth there is a great snap of salty minerality, a stony grip on the back end with snappy lemon & lime sherbet.

Always a treat, especially for the price. Petrol on the nose. Very lively on the palate. Never disappoints!
