Dr. Loosen, 2015 Loosen Erdener Prälat Auslese Goldkapsel

95+
"Made from 98% perfect botrytis berries, the 2015 Erdener Prälat Riesling Auslese Gold Capsule opens with a fascinatingly clear and flinty bouquet of crushed stones and lemon flavors. On the palate this is a gorgeously clear, complex and elegant Riesling with a rich, super ripe fruit and a racy-piquant acidity. The finish is enormously fresh and salty, well structured and long. Keep this vibrating Auslese for at least 5-10 years and appreciate it over many years."

2015 Loosen Erdener Prälat Auslese Goldkapsel
Dr. Loosen

Erdener Prälat is considered by many to be the greatest vineyard in the Mosel region. Dr. Loosen has the largest holdings in this legendary 4-acre vineyard, with 1.5 acres. The site has perfect southern exposure, a 100% (45°) slope, very old vines 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.
