A terrific value in top-flight Riesling, this kabinett is named for a slate common in the middle Mosel and is sourced from a variety of Loosen's estate vineyards. Apple, cinnamon and slate notes are wonderfully interwoven in a wine that's creamy in texture without any accompanying heaviness. Finishes long and vibrant.
There's a spicy, tangy quality to this white, along with quince and anise. It's all underscored by a mineral element and a vibrant structure, with a fine, lingering aftertaste of stone and anise. Best from 2009 through 2022.
This wine has ripe, juicy flavors of nectarine and grapefruit that are luscious and inviting, accented by hints of spice.
The blue slate soil of the Mosel lends a strong mineral backbone to the traditional fruit flavors of this delicious, well-balanced Riesling.

WE 90pts. - Winemaker Notes - Kabinett is the lightest and most delicate style of Riesling in Germany. It is produced from the earliest picking in the best vineyard sites. This estate grown Dr. Loosen Riesling Kabinett embodies the racy, mineral-driven style of steep, blue slate vineyards in the famous middle Mosel villages of Bernkastel, Graach and Wehlen. Dr. Loosen Rieslings from these villages are some of the most elegant white wines in the world, with fine density and subtle power.
