Dr L Grey Slate Riesling, Mosel, Germany 2018 As good as silvaner and scheurebe can be, riesling remains the most versatile and endlessly fascinating of Germany’s white grape varieties. There is something irresistibly, irrepressibly vibrant and refreshing, light-feeling yet full of flavour in a modern dry style, with its overlapping waves of exotic fruit and jangling acidity. The slightly sweet, verging on medium dry style is also particularly appealing at this time of year, with that little tickle of sugar only just noticeable thanks to the balancing acidity, but meaning it matches Thai or Vietnamese herbs and spicing, as well as a punnet of strawberries. Those qualities are on display in two Mosel wines from the consistently good Loosen family: the Dr L Slate Riesling and the superbly spicy yet graceful Dr Loosen Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Kabinett 2018 (Tasting Note).
