Dr. Loosen 2005 Auslese Ürziger Würzgarten

    Tasting notes: A polished and stylish Riesling that explodes with apricot, honey, and racy lime and possesses amazing depth. Worth knowing: An archaeologist by training, Dr. Ernst Loosen remedied many of the ills that plagued his family’s estate when he took it over in 1987: reducing crop yields, halting all chemical fertilization, and revising cellar practices. The cure worked, and Dr. Loosen soon became synonymous with the best in contemporary German winemaking.
