Dr. Loosen Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett 2021 750ml - Germany
Erdener Treppchen: This site took its name from the stone staircases that were built into the hillside so workers could get into the vineyard. The soil here is red slate, which produces muscular, complex wines with an intense minerality. The vineyard was recently reorganized, uncovering an ancient roman press house at the base of the hill.
Kabinett is the lightest, most delicate style of Riesling in Germany, produced from the earliest harvested grapes in the best vineyard sites. Fermentation is stopped by chilling, which results in a lower final alcohol (typically 7.5–8.5 per cent) and a moderate amount of residual sweetness that beautifully balances the bright acidity. It is the lowest level of Prädikatswein, lower in ripeness than Spätlese.
A stunning Kabinett with enormous vitality, the lemon, anise and chamomile aromas are driven by vibrant acidity that pushes the finish way out there.
