Dr. Loosen Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett 2019
A thrilling and vibrant Riesling in the lighter Kabinett style, from red slate soil in the Mosel's "little staircase" vineyard. The Erdener Treppchen vineyard is so steep that, long ago, stone steps were built into the hillside to help workers reach the vines. The iron-infused, red slate soil produces wines that are muscular and complex, with an intense mineral finish. The early harvested Kabinett is a precocious wine, with red fruit aromas and an elegant yet muscular structure.
Robert Parker 90+ Points The 2019 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett is another precisely fresh and aromatic Mosel classic with clear and fresh stone fruit aromas and floral notes. Piquant and crunchy on the palate, this is an intense, crisp and sour yet juicy Kabinett with ripe fruit and challenging, persistently salty acidity and a still-palatable sweetness. Tasted at the domain in September 2020.
A stunning Kabinett with enormous vitality, the lemon, anise and chamomile aromas driven by vibrant acidity that pushes the finish way out there. Drink or hold.
