Dr. Riesling

In my opinion, there are few things better than well-made German Riesling.  Conversely, poorly-made, flabby, sweet, limp Riesling is always a disappointment.

I've fallen in love with the latest string of German Rieslings from 2000, 2001 and now 2002.

Of course, high end German Rieslings cost a pretty penny (and considering the labor costs associated with harvesting grapes on steep, slate covered slopes, these prices are usually warranted).  The little gems are good tasting Rieslings that hit the target of 10-15 bucks.

Dr. Pauly-Bergweiler QBA Riesling was my first find.  Alas, the stock in the wine store is now gone. 

I have since moved up a couple bucks and discovered Dr. Loosen Riesling '02 (~ $13).
This wine is from the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region of Germany

The skinny

light, pale gold in color
scents of white peaches, Golden Delish apples and a hint of honeydew melon
flavor is delicate, slightly sweet, but with enough acidity to avoid heaviness/syrupy-ness
A great aperitif wine.  Also very good with Indian food (had it with saag paneer and naan == Yum!)
***.5 (3.5 stars out of 5)

The label:
dr_loosen_riesling2002

Does anyone know where I can purchase 2002 "Cuvee L" Dr Loosen Riesling thanks in advance, Lonnie Duka

Hi Lonnie Duka
I'm one of those who loves German Riesling too. Unfortunately, in terms of popularity, it doesn't even come close to the Chardonnay. A great pity. The Qmp like Spatlese and Auslese are even more stunning. Do drop me an email at raymd@singnet.com.sg

Longs Drugs (580 Moraga road, Moraga, california) managed to get me two cases of 02 Riesling about three months ago. Ask for Vicki Morris.

Hi!, I have starting playing gangster games. I am finding this very addictive and wondering if anyone else has played these games. I have won over $300 over the past few rounds but I need more members to join my crew so we can win and share more money.
