Winemaker Notes

Dr. Loosen’s “Red Slate” Riesling is a dry counterpart to the classically fruity “Blue Slate” Kabinett. It is produced with fruit from estate-owned vineyards in the red slate soils in the villages of Erden and Ürzig. Farmed specifically for producing a dry wine, it is fermented with native yeasts in 3,000-liter, neutral oak casks. The casks help to soften the acidity, and they allow a tiny amount of oxygenation that adds texture and greater complexity to the wine. Red Slate Riesling Dry has an intense minerality that is warm and enveloping, with a floral, spicy, citrus blossom aroma and a harmonious palate. The dry style is ideal for classic continental cuisine.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Riesling Trocken Rotschiefer (aka Red Slate Dry) is clear, intense and lush on the ripe and well-concentrated nose with its warm slate and tropical fruit aromas. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, rich and racy-piquant, and the finish is straight and fresh, with remarkable complexity, salt, grip and pronounced acidity.

Dr. Loosen Winery Video

The Dr. Loosen Estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. With ungrafted vines averaging 50 years old, some of the best vineyard sites in Germany (four rated grand cru and two premier cru by both the 1868 German classification and the more current Wine Atlas of Germany), Ernst Loosen has the raw materials for stunningly intense, world-class wines. With crop yields almost half of what is permitted by law, only moderate use of organic fertilizers, and old-fashioned cellar practices, Loosen strives to create wines that unmistakably say, "Riesling, Mosel, and Dr. Loosen." In his own words, "The great winemakers I have met invariably possess a clear concept in their mind of what their wine should be. It's a vision that places terroir over technology, and grape quality over quantity. This is the level of winemaking we pursue at Dr. Loosen. Our goal is to produce wines that are luscious, complex, and true to their roots."
