Dr. Loosen Blue Slate Riesling Kabinett 2017

SKU 183103000570


This estate-grown Riesling Kabinett showcases the mineral-driven style of the steep, blue slate vineyards in the middle Mosel. It comes from parcels owned by Dr. Loosen in the villages of Bernkastel, Graach and Wehlen, where the soil is pure blue slate. It is bright and vibrant with the classic white peach fruit and floral, flinty minerality that is so typical of this terroir. This wine makes an elegant aperitif and is an excellent match for seafood and spicy Asian cuisine.

Wine EnthusiastSmoky mineral tones and a pleasantly waxy tinge lend elegance to exuberant grapefruit and lemon in this fresh, forward kabinett. It's approachably semisweet on the palate yet crisply balanced in acidity. The finish is thirst quenching and long, marked by a lacy veil of sugar on the tongue.

Wine SpectatorApricot and mineral notes and a firm backbone of acidity mark this racy kabinett. The charming finish is fairly dry and refreshing. Drink now through 2022.
