Excellent value for an authentic Mosel Riesling Eiswein from Ernst Loosen, one of Germany’s most celebrated winemakers.
Riesling (Ice Wine) 375ml 2013
Size: Small Format
Dr. Loosen Eiswein has a densely packed texture, with enormous concentration and prickly acidity. There is a dark, peachy stoniness and smoky slate in the aroma, with explosive fruit on the mid-palate and a long, persistent finish.
The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that with ungrafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany’s best-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class wines. His vision and uncompromising pursuit of quality are not only reflected in his wines, but also widely recognized by the international wine press. Ernst Loosen has done invaluable work to re-establish worldwide admiration and demand for German wines, and he was named "Man of the Year 2005" by Decanter Magazine.
