Character

Pale lemon. Elegant and delicate on the nose, with fine fruit expression and incredible freshness. This is a Kabinett of unique complexity, minerality and succulence.

Winemaking

Instead of resorting to copious amounts of chemical fertiliser, Weingut Dr. Loosen only work their soils using low quantities of organic manure. And more than anything else, they favour a gentle, more old-school form of winemaking that gives their wines enough time to develop their inner balance and pedigree, fermenting them with wild yeasts whenever possible and affording them a long period of maturation on the fine lees.

Terroir

Erdener Treppchen – bordering Erdener Prälat directly to the east – is so steep that vineyard workers built a stone staircase into the hillside centuries ago so that they could access the vines more easily. This south-to-south-west-facing slope has ferrous red slate soil, yielding rich, racy, complex Rieslings that have an intense mineral aftertaste.
