2013 Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett

Post by djewesbury » 23:17 Fri 24 Oct 2014

Drunk at the Loosen winery with Ernest Loosen and Sales Manager Désirée Schröder on 13th August 2014.

This is a fruity, slightly sweeter style than the Trocken wines; only 8%. Melon and green apple crispness; but not too sharp. The climate means that the Kabinett grapes can hang until November and have full aroma ripeness without developing a full sugar ripeness.

I found this note in my little black book: "not as sweet as thought, but also not as fruity and as acidic as well, don't like it much"
The Eleventh Commandment: Thou shalt know thy Port
