2018 Dr Loosen
This vineyard is positioned between Dr. Loosen’s estate house and the village of Bernkastel in the Middle Mosel Valley. The heavier components of slate in the soil adds to the overall depth. The grapes are harvested early, given its Kabinett designation, so it always exhibits a lively freshness and vibrancy without getting weighty on the palate. There are Granny Smith apples mixed with candied yellow citrus and tangerine flavors. It stays bright and lively throughout showing off its elegant nature.
