Grapes: 100% Riesling
Style: Racy & Fresh
This is a classic Mosel Riesling from the excellent 2015 vintage which was described by “Mosel Maestro” Ernst Loosen as a near perfect vintage.
This Riesling is made in the classic Mosel style, a lovely balance between ripe fruit sweetness and zingy, racy, fresh acidity. The wine has been fermented to a finished alcohol of 11%, so it’s slightly drier than typical Mosel Riesling which is usually 8.5%, but that makes this a better wine to drink with food as well as a lovely light, refreshing aperitif wine. The term Hochgewachs means a higher quality level up from standard QBA.
Delicious on it’s own as an aperitif, but also an excellent match with Asian seafood dishes such as spicy squid or sweet and sour dishes, soft shell crabs and all manner of sushi.
