Simultaneously juicy, very lively and elegant. Spot-on balance and brimming with white-fruit and lemon (fruit and blossom) aromas. Very clean and straight finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Why's this wine for you?

Weingut Dr. Loosen’s property history stretches back over 200 years. The estate is situated in Bernkastel north of the Mosel river as it winds, twists and turns southwards. Ernst Loosen took the helm in 1988 has transformed (doctored) the Estate to the heights of its reputation today. He is also one of the most beloved and idiosyncratic figures in the wine world. Spot him at a tasting or a convention and expect to see fans lining up to get a picture.

Dr. Loosen's focus has always been on highlighting the differences between each vineyard, producing very concentrated wines from minuscule yields.

The quality and precision of this wine is difficult to describe but built of tension and nerve, it resonates on another stratosphere! The famous Wehlen (Sundial) vineyard from which the fruit comes is made up of pure blue cracked slate and focuses the minerality right through the core of the wine.

How's it taste?
The Sundial vineyard in Wehlen is almost nothing but broken shards of blue Devonian slate. 100% Riesling from vines over 60 years old on average.
How was it made?
Cool fermentation in a combination of stainless steel tanks and Fuder barrels, half fermented with natural yeasts, half with cultured yeasts.
