Dr Loosen Grey Slate Riesling 2013

Dr Loosen, Riesling Qualitatswein, Bernkastel, Mosel, Germany 2013

See my posts on sweetness in, and classification of, German wine.

Screw cap closure, 10.5% abv, £10, widely available.

WSET style tasting note
Appearance – clear and bright, medium intensity lemon, showing tears.

Nose – clean on the nose, with a medium intensity, youthful, with aromas of stone fruit – apricot and white nectarine, ripe grapefruit and lemon boiled sweets, with a hint of fresh cut grass.

Palate – medium dry, high acidity, no tannin, medium (-) alcohol, medium bodied, with medium intensity flavours of ripe dessert apple, white nectarine, galia melon and a waxy note.  A clean finish with a medium (+) length.

Quality – a good quality wine, with balanced fresh acidity and alcohol + residual sugar; all harmonious with the intensity of flavour.  A wine of modest complexity yet good concentration of fruit, with a good length showing care and quality.  Ready to drink now, this wine has concentration of flavour and acidity to improve with cellaring over 3-5 years.
