Pop, Clink. Sparkle!
The non-vintage Dr. L Sparkling Riesling from Loosen Bros begins with a pleasing aroma of apple, melon, peach, a little honeysuckle and a touch of petrol.
Tasting the wine shows just a touch of sweetness balanced by some beautiful bubbles and acidity. It features similar flavors to the nose with some added tangerine when tasting this crisp and vibrant wine.
It ends mostly dry, crisp and long. This is a lovely wine and a nice change up to other sparkling wines with the Riesling.
