A Riesling with a peppery bite – loved by some
This is another fine wine from Dr Loosen but it was not quite to our panel’s taste, hence the 3.8 rating. Its name means “spice garden” and the red, volcanic, slatey soils of this vineyard are known for producing a wine with an earthy mineral flavour and a distinct sharpness, described by some as spicy or peppery, but to us a little too astringent – described by one of us as “biting the back of my throat”. Of course, this does provide a balance to the classic Riesling fruitiness, and some will enjoy its fieriness and lingering finish – so this is definitely one to try if you’re enjoying exploring the world of Rieslings.
Or this drink may well be available from your high street supplier – we’re sorry we cannot check them all but you might like to.
