2010 Loosen Bros. Riesling

Today my first Riesling from the old country, specifically the Mosel Valley.  This bottle ran me $12 at the local Liquee Mart.

The label of this Loosen Bros. Riesling says it's "fruity, with a refreshingly crisp taste that cools the palate, making it an excellent wine for spicy foods."

I'd agree with that.  I'd also add that I caught a minerality to it.  I aerated the wine, and right out of the bottle it was sweet but not as apple juice sweet as some Rieslings I've drunk recently, with pear maybe?, and an acidity that hits you in the back of the throat.

Not my favorite wine of all time, but a nice Riesling, and I bet it would go well with Indian or Southeast Asian cuisine.
