Dr. Loosen 2017 Bernkasteler Lay Riesling Kabinett

$ 2799

Winemaker Notes

Erni Loosen considers Bernkasteler Lay to be equal or superior to the famed and expensive Bernkasteler Doctor vineyard. A Grand Cru vineyard, the dark blue slate soils of Bernkastler Lay produce of wine laden with white peach, green apple, citrus zest and wet stone.

Always on the denser more serious side of Kabinett, this would be at its best with salty, smoky and spicy foods, from gravlax to shrimp in a red chili sauce

Critical Acclaim
92pts James Suckling
Very fresh apple and cassis character with wonderful freshness. A long, crisp finish. Screw cap. A long, crisp finish with pronounced minerality and a discrete hint of grape sweetness.
92pts Wine Enthusiast 
Shards of crushed mineral and spice add complexity to hits of lime soda and honey in this electric off-dry kabinett. Its citrus flavors are intensely concentrated, highlighted by spine-tingling acidity and a lip-smacking honey finish. Enjoy now–2028.
