Dr. Loosen Dr. L Riesling 2008

By | December 12, 2009

Dr Loosen is good at making wine. Very good. Great Rieslings are truly great and come with the truly great price tags to match.  Dr L is the friendly, approachable entry level offer from the brand.  Entry level Riesling often means nasty.
This wine came in a cheaply moulded bottle with a screw cap, it’s designed to be drunk with the weeks’ groceries it’s bought with, like all supermarket wines. It’s very pale and smells positively lively with tropical fruits and a mineral zing but no petrol. That makes it far more widely acceptable to less adventurous drinker, but seems weird in a Riesling.
It tasted just off dry with a mineral acidity and more tropical mango fruitiness with lemon and lime. It was light in body and alcohol but with quite a flavour punch. At £7-8 from Sainsbury’s this is great value as a different, lighter choice. At this time of year it would work well as a lunch or afternoon glass when you want to keep the alcohol level low (8%), although it really comes into its own as a summer sipper.

    Golly Wine Drops,

    In one month we will be launching wineclubzone.com. We will be launching a blog network and featuring top quality blogs like yours. Our main goal is to index all the wine clubs nationwide both online and offline, and let the bloggers discuss them on our forum.

    We wanted to see if you would be interested in joining the network. Here would be the benefits:

    1) We would use your site feed and feed in the first 200 characters of your post and link back to you as a means of driving traffic to your site.

    2) We will link you from our main blog page.

    In return we will ask for a 125X125 widget on the sidebar of your blog.

    Let us know if this is something you would be interested in.
