Tasting Notes

A fruit driven wine with a note of Peach and red berries, this has weight and density with a lovely mouthwatering finish.

Vintage Description

Fermented with naturally occurring yeast in 3,000 litre neutral oak casks, then allowed to develop in cask on its lees for a further 8 to 12 months before bottling.

Property Information

The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the family for over 200 years and possesses some of Germany’s most respected and spectacular vineyards. Top sites from the villages of Bernkastel, Graach, Wehlen, Ürzig and Erden present their own different characteristics like red slate, blue slate, red volcanic conglomerate soil, dangerously steep slopes and in some cases ungrafted vines that can be up to 140 years old.

In the last few years Ernst Loosen has moved a great deal of his attention to producing dry wines in the traditional style of his ancestors. This means a focus only using healthy grapes, spontaneous fermentation, extended maturation of the wines in large wooden casks and an emphasis on letting his dry wines rest the full lees.
