The 2011 Dr. L Riesling evokes a walk through an orchard in the late summer: luscious pear, peach and apple aromas retain the crisp sweet tart quality of ripening fruit just before harvest. On the palate, the medium-bodied wine is refreshing and juicy, with zippy acidity balancing bright flavors of pear, apricot, mango and lime. The lush attack is followed by a long finish that is simultaneously sweet and tart, dry and mouth-watering.
With its bright fruit, cleansing acidity and low alcohol, the Dr. L Riesling is the ideal welcome wine for every gathering, and a great go-to glass for just about every course in a meal. A perfect pour for brunch, its flavors complement everything from rich eggs and hollandaise to sweet waffles and salty ham. It's also excellent with Asian noodle dishes and salad rolls, especially if there is a touch of heat involved. For dessert, Dr. L loves a pear or apple crisp.
We really enjoyed the 2010 and this is just as good. Very floral and fruity; not overly sweet. Very drinkable. Good value
The first time, i had it after a glass of excellent Merlot and Moscato, which was a though act to follow for this wine. Had some the next day. Still didn't taste great. But not too bad if you are a fan of Riesling.
Hard to drink compared to the Kabinett. Sadly disappointing. Will stick with the more expensive version which is reliably delicious.
