Robert Parker (RP) : 87 Points (2014)
The 2014 Riesling trocken Rotschiefer (aka Red Slate) is sourced in the Zeltinger/Rachtiger Deutschherrenberg, Erdener Herrenberg, and the grands crus Lösnicher Försterlay and Kinheimer Rosenberg. Although the Loosen team selected three different kind of grapes and eliminates botrytis for the dry wines, especially for the Kabinetts, there are some overripe raisin flavors on the bright nose. Light-footed and very mineral on the medium-bodied palate, this 11.5% alcohol Rotschiefer displays a stimulatingly crisp, salty and grippy finish.

The Spätlese designation means that the grapes get an extra week or two of hang time, which helps them develop higher ripeness and deeper flavors. The Erdener Treppchen Spätlese is a fruit-driven Riesling that combines extraordinary concentration and length with bracing minerality

Ürziger Würzgarten produces wines of a completely unique nature. The wines show the typically juicy and exotic fruit of the “spice garden” vineyard, with a rich mouth feel, a spicy acid tingle and lingering finish. Kabinett is the lightest, most delicate style of Riesling in Germany, produced from the earliest harvested grapes.

The Bernkasteler Lay vineyard typically produces dry wines with a complex aroma that combines floral, fruit and herbal components. Classic blue slate fruits, such as apple and white peach, emerge on the palate, with a fine, elegant texture and a pure finish.

A benchmark for Argentinian Malbec. Sourced from vineyards with a perfect combination of altitude and stony soils with large rock deposits, which give this wine fresh, spicy notes and structured, yet soft, tannins.
