Critical Acclaim

WE90 Wine Enthusiast 8/1/2017

"Vibrant strikes of acidity and spicy mineral tones permeate through this brisk, feather-light spätlese. Zesty green-apple and plum flavors are cutting and spry on the palate, accentuated by delicate, lingering sweetness. Invigorating now, it should gain depth through 2025 and hold further." (90 pts.)

RP89 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 28th Apr 2017

"On the nose, Loosen’s 2015 Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Spätlese (AP 27 16) is clear and delivers bright fruit and some flinty slate aromas, but it is still pretty reductive and you can hardly identify it as a Würzgarten. Light, round, lush and piquant, it has a vital acidity and firm structure. This elegant 8.5% alcohol Spätlese is a very stimulating and finessed Riesling with a good finish." (89 pts.)

Germany

The German wine-making tradition is long and illustrious, dating back to as early as AD 800. And for a country just slightly smaller than Montana, Germany produces and consumes a great deal of wine (it's the seventh-largest producer and sixth-highest consumer).

Germany is situated at the most northerly latitude at which grapes can ripen; the winters are cold and the growing season short, all of which, incidentally, are nearly identical to the Finger Lakes Region of New York. Most of its wine regions are situated in central and southwestern Germany. The most significant are the Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Rheinpfalz, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Nahe, Franken and Baden.

The Riesling grape is king in Germany, even though it represents only 20% of total plantings: Müller-Thurgau (a Riesling-silvaner cross) has the most, followed by the red grapes Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Dornfelder. In good years and in the care of master winemakers, Riesling makes one of the greatest white wines in the world, with a perfect balance of sugar and acid, exquisite fruit and fragrance and with considerable potential for aging.
