Loosen Bros Riesling QbA Mosel Dr. L 2015

$11.95

Product Description

"A crisp, fruity and refreshing Riesling from the mineral-rich slate soil of the Mosel valley. It is an ideal companion to mildly spicy stir fry dishes and Indian curries or simply serve as an aperitif." - Winery

The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for more than 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 immediately changed the estate’s vineyard practices to dramatically reduce crop size. He stopped all chemical fertilization, preferring only moderate use of organic fertilizers and soil amendments. He extended his commitment to sustainable practices beyond the vineyards and into the winery, implementing improvements in materials recycling, energy efficiency and water conservation. At harvest, he insisted on fully mature fruit that had been very strictly selected. And he turned to gentler cellar practices that would allow the wine to develop its full potential with a minimum of technological meddling.

The staple, Dr. L Riesling comes exclusively from traditional vineyards with steep slopes and slate soil. This introductory, non-estate wine embodies the elegant and racy style of classic Mosel Riesling. By working closely with growers on long-term contract, brothers Ernst and Thomas Loosen are able to assure excellent quality in every vintage.
