2011 Dr. Loosen Erdener Treppchen Riesling Auslese

Post by djewesbury » 23:25 Fri 24 Oct 2014

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

7%. This has a light nose, it gives its sweetness forth clearly, but also has piercing cleanness underneath ripe melons. It's light and buttery, the sweetness is from mango or similar, without being as cloying.

I found this note in my little black book: "some botrytis in the nose plus apricot, full body, apricot in the mouth, not much acidity, don't like it much"
