Dr. Loosen “Red Slate” Riesling Dry
A well-balanced dry Riesling from estate vineyards that show the distinctively forceful minerality of red slate soils.
This dry Riesling is produced with fruit from estate-owned vineyards in the red slate soils found in the contiguous Middle Mosel villages of Ürzig, Erden, Lösnich and Kinheim. Following the traditional methods of Ernst Loosen’s great-grandfather, Peter Loosen, this wine is fermented in 3,000-liter, 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.
