Top 10 wines in the US press

26th June, 2014 by Lauren Eads

Dr. Loosen Red Slate Dry Riesling 2012, Mosel, Germany

dr-loosen-red-slate-dry-riesling-lgKicking off this week’s top 10 wines in the US press is Dave McIntyre, who this week recommended a selection of Riesling wines writing in The Washington Post.

He said: “Ernst Loosen is Dr. Riesling. He has his finger on the pulse of this grape, whether it’s grown in the Mosel, where his home winery is located; in other areas of Germany; and even in Washington state, where he collaborates with Chateau Ste. Michelle winery on the popular Eroica Riesling. Red Slate refers to the type of soil in the vineyard, and this dry, mineral wine seems to summon the essence of that vineyard into the glass, where it can be released with a gentle swirl. It’s compelling enough to drink by itself, or try it with light appetizers. For spicier foods, I would recommend a fruitier, sweeter Riesling.”

Price: $17
