Dr. Loosen, 2015 Loosen Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spätlese

"The 2015 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spätlese opens with clear, precise, fresh and elegant, flinty flavored fruit aromas of ripe Riesling grapes. Round, piquant and not all too sweet, this is an elegant, lush, piquant and racy-mineral Spätlese. It has a lean, straight and pretty salty finish. Pure, piquant and stimulating, this is a gastronomic Spätlese with 8.5% alcohol and moderate sweetness, but a lot of grip."
Dr. Loosen, 2015 Loosen Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spätlese

"Zesty lime, pungently peel-inflected tangerine, anise and sassafras usher in a bright, texturally spare palate. The penetrating finish is brashly bright, grippingly pungent and piquant, offering ample refreshing juiciness and a striking, smoky suggestion of crushed stone."

100% Riesling

Located in far western Germany, the Mosel valley’s steep, southfacing slopes create the perfect climate for Riesling, giving the vines ideal exposure to the sun. The cool climate allows the grapes to ripen slowly while retaining bright acidity.

The Spätlese designation means that the grapes get an extra week or two of hang time, which helps them develop higher ripeness and deeper flavors. The Erdener Treppchen Spätlese is a fruit-driven Riesling that combines extraordinary concentration and length with bracing minerality.

Cool fermentation takes place in a combination of stainless steel tanks and traditional Fuder barrels; fermentation is stopped by chilling.
