This estate-grown Riesling
Kabinett showcases the mineral-driven style of the steep, blue slate vineyards
in the middle Mosel. It comes from parcels owned by Dr. Loosen in the villages
of Bernkastel, Graach and Wehlen, where the soil is pure blue slate. It is
bright and vibrant with the classic white peach fruit and floral, flinty
minerality that is so typical of this terroir.
This wine makes an elegant
aperitif and is an excellent match for seafood and spicy Asian cuisine.
hints of flint and smoke often attributed to the Devonian-era slate of the
middle Mosel abound in this sprightly off-dry Riesling. Its mineral backbone
doesn't deflect, however, from buoyant white grapefruit and peach flavors that
penetrate through the finish. Drink now through 2020."
