Winemaker's Notes

The vineyards of Germany's Mosel Valley are characterized by their incredibly steep, south-facing slopes, mineral-rich slate soil and favorable position near the river. Excellent drainage and the heat-retaining quality of the rocky slate soil are also important factors in producing fully ripe, concentrated wines. The combination of these elements results in racy, mineral-inflected Rieslings that are fruity, crisp and very refreshing to drink. This entry-level Loosen Riesling embodies the all of the elegant and racy characteristics of the steep, slate-soil Mosel vineyards.

Critical Acclaim

"Shy in aroma, with delicate peach, grapefruit and mineral flavors matched to the bright acidity. This is balanced and graceful, with a long, subtle finish. Drink now through 2018. 60,000 cases imported."
