DR. LOOSEN ESTATE RIESLING BEERENAUSLESE
DR. LOOSEN

The grapes utilized for this bottling hail from those throughout the estate's ownings within the Mosel, and the vines average age is 60 years upon ungrafted rootstock. It is an intense, ultra-concentrated dessert wine made from hand-selected grapes that have been shriveled about halfway to raisins by botrytis. The legal minimum for BA must weight is 110° Oechsle, but at Dr. Loosen it usually starts with a minimum of 120° Oechsle. Once selectively hand harvested the grapes undergo gentle whole-cluster pressing, natural settling, and then proceed to ferment in a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank. 

Aromatically the wine has notes of candied citrus rinds and honeysuckle. The palate is beautifully sweet, with a balance of still present, racy minerality that finishes the wine on a lighter note.
