Dr. Loosen Riesling Kabinett Blue Slate 2013

Member Review by steve16046:

Pours a bright, clear golden color. Very light fragrance on the nose. Some aromas of apples, pears and minerals. Starts off with a sweet taste of green apples. In the middle there is some minerality to balance the sweet taste, but the green apples are still predominant. Finishes similar to the middle. A slightly sweet and refreshing Kabinett. Very versatile wine, can be drunk on its own or with food. We had it with some taco wraps and it complimented it nicely due to the crisp acidity.

The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen (pronounced loh-zen) assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that with ungrafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany’s best-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class wines. To achieve this, Ernst dramatically reduced his crop size and stopped all chemical fertilization, preferring only moderate use of organic fertilizers. And, most importantly, he turned to gentler cellar practices that allow the wine to develop its full potential with a minimum of handling and technological meddling. Read less

A juicy and fresh-tasting white, with plenty of crisp apple ... Drink now through 2022. -KM

Kabinett is the lightest and most delicate style of Riesling in Germany. It is produced from the earliest picking in the best vineyard sites. Dr. Loosen Rieslings from these villages are some of the most elegant white wines in the world, with fine density and subtle power.
