LOOSEN RIESLING DR LOOSEN 18
Gebrüder Loosen (“Loosen Brothers” in German), is the winemaking company that produces the range of Dr. L wines. It is owned by Ernst Loosen, who also owns the Dr. Loosen estate, and is managed by his younger brother, Thomas. Together, the brothers work with small growers throughout the Mosel region to source fruit for the wines, which are vinified by the same highly skilled cellar team that produces the Dr. Loosen estate wines. Very strict quality standards require that the growers improve their viticulture in order to sustainably grow the healthy, perfectly ripe fruit that Ernst and Thomas want for these wines.
Located in far western Germany, the Mosel valley’s steep, south facing slopes and slate soil
create the perfect conditions for Riesling, giving the vines ideal exposure to the sun and a
racy minerality. The cool, northern climate allows the grapes to ripen slowly, for full flavor
development, while retaining bright, refreshing acidity.
This Loosen Bros. Riesling embodies the delicate and racy characteristics of
traditional, slate-soil Mosel vineyards at a very affordable price for every day enjoyment.
It is a bright, vibrant, fruit-driven wine, with a juicy mid-palate and a crisp, drying finish.
