Dr. Loosen Red Slate Dry Riesling 2015
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Riesling trocken Rotschiefer (aka Red Slate) is very aromatic on first nose, but becomes more and more subtle, fresh and slate-like with aeration. This is a light, but round and charming Riesling with a lush and juicy fruit; it has delicate structure and a nice grip from the one year sur lie aging in 3,000-liter barrels. The finish is long, aromatic and very well structured. The grapes for this wine are sourced from the top sites: Ürziger Würzgarten, Kinheimer Rosenberg and the Lösnicher Försterlay, and a few lesser sites that are all based on red slate soils.
