"Rich golden yellow. Unctuous aromas of papaya, dried apricot and fresh fig waft over botrytis notes of nutmeg and cinnamon. Succulent honey-glazed peach fruit is kept fresh by robust, bright acidity and a dash of slate. Polished and high-toned on the long, satisfying finish."
–April 2015

(AIR-din-er PRAY-laht)

With 1.5 acres, Dr. Loosen has the largest holdings in this legendary four-acre vineyard. The site has a completely southern exposure & slope (45°), 70+ year old vines planted in mineral-rich red slate soil, and an ideal location directly adjacent to the river. All of these advantages, combined with the vineyard's position below huge, heat-retaining cliffs, explain why Dr. Loosen never harvests anything less than Auslese-level ripeness from this site.

Ernst dramatically restricts crop size, uses only organic fertilization, insists on very strict fruit selection, and employs gentle cellar practices to allow the wine to develop its full potential with a minimum of handling.
