John Gilman, 90 Points 

"The 2021 Blue Slate Riesling Kabinett AP #1 from Weingut Dr. Loosen is a pretty example of its Prädikat level. The wine carries forty grams of residual sugar this year, to balance off its 8.5 grams of acidity and is eight percent octane. The bouquet here is refined and complex, wafting from the glass in a mix of pear, white cherry, apple blossoms, a touch of wild yeast, a lovely base of slate and a topnote of bee pollen. On the palate the wine is zesty, medium-full and filigreed, with excellent mineral drive and focus, bouncy acids and a long, youthfully complex and seamlessly balanced finish. Good juice. 2022-2050+." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"The year 2021 proved to be a stark contrast to the recent climate trend, because it was considerably cooler and wetter than the previous six years. This contrast led to challenges in the vineyard that had us working hard until the very last day, but it was all worth it. This Riesling shines with fine fruit, wonderful slate minerality and a pronounced raciness, which are all elements of a classic Mosel vintage and one that is already proving itself to be quite pleasurable to drink." 

Alcohol: 7.5%
