Wine Review: This white gold colored Riesling opens with fragrant and inviting lemon-lime bouquet with a hint of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, a little effervescent and slightly acidic. The flavor profile is a tart green apple with a hint of lemon and minerality. The finish is mildly sweet and lingers nicely. This wine would pair well Great Hill blue cheese and fig spread on a sliced baguette. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Blue Slate Kabinett is our answer to the increasing challenge of producing the light, delicate Kabinett style in the "grand cru" single vineyard sites. 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. This wine makes an elegant aperitif and is an excellent match for seafood, spicy Asian cuisine and lighter dishes.
