2005 Dr. L Loosen Bros. Riesling, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer ($11)

WINE FIND

July 12, 2006|By MICHAEL DRESSER

This lightly sweet, low-alcohol (8.5 percent) German riesling is ideal for casual summertime quaffing. Its acidity balances out the sugar so that there's nothing cloying about it. It boasts lively and penetrating flavors of honey, apples, peaches, cherries and minerals, as well as a pleasingly creamy texture. The screw cap makes it convenient for picnics. Serve with spicy fried chicken, Southeast Asian cuisine.
