Sophisticated, high-end collector's wine from Germany's
Winemaker of the Year in 2001 (Gault Millau). Low alcohol for today's healthier lifestyle.
A massive, racy Riesling — gorgeous on its own, and a
spectacular partner for elegant, fresh fruit desserts.
"The Loosen 2006 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Auslese suggest herbal candy and lozenges, Chartreuse-like floral-herbal distillate, honey, and over-ripe honeydew melon. Hints of smoke and wet stone add interest and there is a lovely sense of levity to the long finish, which is clearly balanced and energized by springs of ripe acidity that aren’t directly obvious. (This has only 7.5% alcohol.) Here, too we should have a long – probably 30-year – keeper."
The Wine Advocate
"Ripe, golden orchard fruit shines. Apple, lime and stone notes mingle and persist through the finish. Ends with a long aftertaste of honey. Drink now through 2030."
