Dr. Loosen Erdener Treppchen Riesling GG Alte Reben
A sleek and refined dry Riesling from 100-year-old, ungrafted vines in the red slate soil of the “little staircase” vineyard.
The Erdener Treppchen vineyard produces wines that are muscular and complex, with an intense mineral finish. Grosses Gewächs (GG) simply means “great growth” and is the designation for an estate’s best dry wine from a Grosse Lage (grand cru) vineyard. From a parcel of extremely old vines (“alte Reben”), this wine was kept on the full lees for a year before bottling. The extended maturation time allows the wine to develop greater texture and a natural harmony.
