I love a good Riesling (and most other ‘German’ types of wine) so I was very happy to recently dry Dr Loosen Bros 2015 Riesling. It comes in at 8.5% and is from the Mosel region of Germany.
As you can seen in the picture the label is minimalist at not eye-catching but the smell of the wine is very pleasant; light with a subtle hint of fruitiness. Trying it on its own, it was sweet (but not too sweet) and very easy to drink. It had a slight tang at the end but overall it was a good palate cleanser. We paired the wine with some Chinese Pork Belly and the wine complemented it perfectly. The wine was nicer to drink with the food as it was a little bit smoother and less tangy.
Overall the wine was lovely and I’d recommend it to have with Asian food or as a drink on its own.
