Dr. Loosen Sparkling Riesling NV

GermanyThis riesling is produced in the Charmat method in an extra-dry style, with 19 g/L residual sugar. It shows a classic, if not overly complex, riesling nose of lime and white flowers, though it lacks the intense aromatics that sparkling Riesling can sometimes have, with little to no biscuity autolytic character. The mousse is somewhat frothy and the noticeable sweetness masks the underlying racy acidity. The result is a simple, aperitif-style of sparkling wine that’s fairly priced and will certainly appeal to fans of Prosecco. I’d try this with sushi.Tasted: 11 January 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 19.00 Producer: Weingut Dr. LoosenDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
