"Stony mineral notes juxtapose rich honey and grapefruit flavors in this foursquare dry Riesling. It’s broad and creamy on the palate yet briskly balanced with acidity. The finish is vibrant and long, accented with hints of lime and salt. Drink now through 2020."

2015 Loosen Red Slate Dry Riesling
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.

This dry Riesling is produced with fruit from estate-owned vineyards in the red slate soils found in the villages of Ürzig, Erden, Lösnich and Kinheim. It is fermented in the traditional style in 3,000 L, neutral oak casks and kept on the full lees for 12 months. The extended lees contact stabilizes the wine naturally and gives it time to develop a harmonious balance.
