Loosen Bros. Dr. L. Sparkling Riesling, Deutscher Sekt
Here's a tasty, just off-dry, varietally accurate example of riesling with bubbles. Depth and complexity are average, but this is a nice little value. Score: 86 (John Szabo, MS, WineAlign.com, Jan 2013)

Description: Pale straw in colour with a medium intense nose.
I was a little disappointed in the sparkling from Dr. Loosen as I expected better quality. On the plus side, my mother and aunt who are not Champagne lovers really loved this wine.
Positives: Light crisp wine featuring lemon/lime, chalk, green apples and pink grapefruit.
Negatives: Has a slightly bitter after taste.
Drink now on its own or pair it with Chinese food
