Dr. Loosen, 2016 Dr. Loosen Riesling Erdener Treppchen Spätlese

93
"The 2016 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spätlese (AP 48 17) has a deep, clear and lovely floral/herbal-scented nose with bright fruit and delicate flinty aromas. Full-bodied, lush and round, this is a seriously structured and salty-mineral Riesling with great tension. Though still tight and reductive, this is a promising Riesling Spätlese of remarkable complexity. Mouthwatering finish. Tasted February 2018."

"A cool, steely undertone intensifies crisp, yellow stone fruit and lime on the nose and palate. With electric, sweet-tart darts of honey and nectar, this is a piercing, concentrated wine that has a long lime-pith finish."

"Juicy yet elegant, displaying flavors of peach cobbler and ripe apple. Lively acidity keeps everything in balance and delivers a mineral-infused aftertaste. Drink now through 2028. 600 cases imported."

2016 Dr. Loosen Riesling Erdener Treppchen Spätlese
Dr. Loosen

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.
