Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Riesling opens with a mild lime bouquet with a hint of green apple. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, pleasantly sweet, and nicely balanced between its acidity and fruit. The flavor profile is a sweet blend of gentle lime, apricot, and ripe pear with a hint of mineral in the end. The finish is very agreeable and lingers a bit. Pair this wine with chicken and mushroom lo mein. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Now in its third vintage, the Blue Slate Kabinett is our answer to the increasing difficulty of producing true Mosel Kabinett in the grand cru single-vineyard sites, such as Wehlener Sonnenuhr and Graacher Himmelreich. This wine comes from parcels owned by Dr. Loosen in the blue slate villages of Bernkastel, Graach and Wehlen. It is bright and pure with the classic white peach fruit and floral, flinty minerality that is so typical from blue slate. A plush attack on the mid-palate leads to a deliciously firm, delicate finish. Dr. Loosen Blue Slate Riesling Kabinett makes an elegant aperitif, and is also an excellent partner for seafood and spicy Asian cuisine.
