Beat Caduff: Super Aromatik in der Nase mit betörend frischen Aromen nach weissen Johannisbeeren, Gletschereiszeltli, Blutorangen, Maraquia und Hawaiiananas. Am Gaumen wunderbar zart, elegant und finessenreich, dazu sensationell saftig und mit viel Power, der Wein bewegt sich mit beschwingter Leichtigkeit und tänzerische Eleganz, der perfekte Sommerwein.


Winemaker's Notes:

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). Wehlener Sonnenuhr (VAY-len-er ZON-en-ooer) is a precipitously steep and rocky vineyard which yields some of the most elegant and sophisticated white wines in the world. It has very thin soil and the purest blue slate of any Mosel vineyard. This gives a lively minerality to the wine, along with a delicate and crisp acidity that perfectly balances the bright white peach and lemon fruit. It’s an aristocratic and charming wine that dances gracefully on the palate.
