Estate Riesling, Loewen

This is an estate wine, all from the Liewener Klostergarten. Some of you will remember this wine when it was a Kabinett. This is now “declassified” as single vineyard labeled wines should denote the highest quality at the estate as well as individuality, so Christopher agreed to declassify the site and just call it “Estate Riesling”.  Soils here are a bit richer than the steep sites and the vine material is not nearly as old. Fruit is picked and pressed whole clustr before sedimentation. The juice is racked into Fuder and Stainless steel where it ferments completely with native yeast and without temperature control. Fermentation is stopped by taste and a small addition of SO2 is added to stabilize the wine.

Tasting Notes

“The 17 is super-salty, less gigglesome than the ’16; a lower register of flavor and more murmur than chuckle, but the balance is perfect, and this wine more than “does the job” – it invents the job.” Terry Theise
