Food Pairings for Dr. Loosen Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett
Dr. Loosen produces only Riesling from traditional, slate-soil vineyards in the Mosel valley. A full range of Prädikat wines is made from six grand cru single-vineyard sites. The vineyards of Dr. Loosen owe their excellent quality to three major factors: the exceptional regional climate of the Middle Mosel area, the mineral-rich slate and volcanic soils, and the incredible age of the estate’s ungrafted Riesling vines. All of Dr. Loosen’s six major vineyards were designated as Erste Lage (equivalent to grand cru) in the 1868 Prussian classification of Mosel vineyards, which was undertaken for tax assessment purposes. This classification predates the grand cru system in Burgundy, and was updated by Stuart Pigott and Hugh Johnson in the Wine Atlas of Germany (1995). The Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett is a wonderfully character-filled wine, which shows off the versatility of the varietal. At once vibrant with bracing acidity, there is also an abundance of citrus-laced fruit. This is amazing with Asian or any kind of spicy food.
