DR. LOOSEN Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Kabinett 2019

(Mosel, Germany ) $30

If you whipped together peaches, cream, and mountain air, you’d perhaps arrive at the beauty and freshness of this mesmerizing riesling from Dr. Loosen. So light in body it barely brushes against your palate, the wine is nonetheless packed with fruit, spice, and mineral flavors. No surprise since it’s from a renowned producer working with one of the most famous vineyards on the Mosel—the Würzgarten (spice garden) vineyard in the town of Ürzig. Insanely steep, the vineyard is planted in volcanic red slate soils. Kabinetts such as this are very low in alcohol, just off dry, and were once drunk in Germany in the afternoon, the way the English drink tea. Your next Sunday afternoon, give it a try. (9% abv)
