Dr Loosen Riesling Beerenauslese Mosel 187ml 2013
This Beerenauslese, exclusively from estate owned vineyards, has a juicy mouthful of ripe fruits with a finish that is long and satisfying."Liquidised dried apricots with a seam of lemon freshness. In fact, incredibly fresh given the sweetness level. Purity and power combined. Slides down. Mainly Bernkasteler Lay. Picked first week in October, thus benfitting from the early most elegant and freshest botrytis. Stunning." Julia Harding MW

The Dr.Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen assumed ownership in 1988, he realised that with ungrafted vines averaging 50 years old in top-rated Middle Mosel vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense world-class wines. To do this, Ernst dramatically reduced his crop size and stopped all chemical fertilisation, preferring only moderate use of organic fertilisers. He insisted on fully mature fruit that had been very strictly selected. He turned to gentler cellar practices that would allow the wine to develop its full potential with a minimum of handling and technological meddling.
