Dr. Loosen, 2015 Loosen Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett

"Wet river rock and struck flint notes accentuate the sharp, tangy vitality of this razor-edged Kabinett. Zesty white grapefruit, lime and tangerine flavors penetrate deeply on the midpalate, finishing long but lean. It drinks beautifully already but should hold well through 2022."
Wine Advocate
Dr. Loosen, 2015 Loosen Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett

"From iron-rich, red slate soils, the 2015 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett opens with a clear and aromatic, slightly flinty bouquet with tropical fruit and ginger aromas. Round, lush and piquant, this is an intense and well-concentrated Kabinett; it has fine acidity, serious terroir expression and an elegant and persistent finish that reveals good grip and salty purity. This is a very stimulating and complex 8% alcohol Kabinett from old vines on steep terraces."

"The Little Staircase of Erden" - The Erdener Treppchen (pronounced AIR-din-er TREP-shen) vineyard is so steep that long ago, stone steps were built into the hillside to enable workers to reach the vines. This site was rated “First Vineyard” (“Erste Lage”) in the 1868 Prussian classification of the Mosel and is rated “Great First-Class” in the Wine Atlas of Germany by Hugh Johnson & Stuart Pigott (1995).

Kabinett is the lightest and most delicate style of Riesling in Germany, produced from the earliest grapes in the best vineyard sites. Mosel Kabinetts are some of the most elegant and subtle wines in the world. This densely packed Dr. Loosen Riesling Kabinett shows both elegance and strength in its aromatic intensity and concentrated texture.
