    (Dr Loosen Bernkasteler Lay Kabinett) Screwcap. This is rather pale, and still possesses a little carbon dioxide in the glass. The nose is attractive, showing fresh melon and lime. The palate, meanwhile, seems to have better acids than I described last time, as it is rounded and fat but with plenty of acid and carbon dioxide zip to keep it fresh. I think the quality is as previously described, although I would not be so hard on the wine's structure based on this tasting; there is freshness, acid and bite here. Really very good indeed.

    (Dr Loosen Bernkasteler Lay Kabinett) Screwcap. This wine has a similarly pale hue, again with a fruit laden nose, but here more melon and lime, perhaps more typical, with a steely-stony character beneath. The palate is again fat and round and is not the most rapier like I have ever encountered, but clearly this is a characteristic on the 2005 vintage. There is good freshness though, and again that delicious zippy character. Clean, with a lovely weight, and a wealth of rounded, resinous, sugar-rich texture and fruit on the finish. Fine quality, intrinsically enjoyable, but not what all buyers of Kabinett will be looking for (true of the vintage as a whole, rather than being a criticism of Loosen).
