Dr Loosen Riesling Kabinett 2012 Graacher Himmelreich

Incomprehensible German wine labelling laws aside, I should drink more German riesling.  This is a very typical example of a good quality Mosel Cabinet riesling from Dr. Loosen.  Its aromatics are very attractive, with expressions of white florals, stones and lemon rind.  The palate is off-dry, perhaps even medium-dry at a pinch, but well balanced with refreshing racy acidity and some youthful spritz, producing a wine with a crisp and mouth watering finish.  Its alcohol barely registering at 8%, this is a lovely, fresh Mosel riesling.  Good

Abv: 8%, Price: $30, Vendors and website: http://drloosen.com, Tasted: 2015
