DR. LOOSEN, RIESLING DRY RED SLATE
This dry Riesling is produced with fruit from estate-owned vineyards in the red slate soils found in the contiguous villages of Ürzig, Erden, Lösnich, and Kinheim. Following the traditional methods of Ernst Loosen’s great-grandfather, Peter Loosen, this wine is fermented in 3,000-liter, neutral oak casks, and kept on the full lees for 12 months. The extended lees contact stabilizes the wine naturally and gives it time to develop a harmonious balance.
Notes of grapefruit, tangerine, a hint of apricot, geranium, anise, and herbs. The wine is rather ample and juicy on the almost sweet-tasting palate. Yet the finish has more presence, zest, and spices, and tastes dry.
