Other Info:
Ernie Loosen produces only Riesling from traditional, slate-soil vineyards in the Mosel Valley. A full range of Prädikat wines is made from six grand cru single-vineyard sites. The vineyards of Dr. Loosen owe their excellent quality to three major factors: the exceptional regional climate of the Middle Mosel area, the mineral-rich slate and volcanic soils, and the incredible age of the estate’s ungrafted Riesling vines. These are world class wines of exceptional quality.

Dr. Loosen Estate practices sustainable viticulture, under the strict German environmental regulations.

Beerenauslese is the German term for 'selected berries,' which is used in the wine trade to describe specially selected, overripe grapes that are hand-picked and then pressed separately from other grapes. Beerenauslese is one of the six subcategories of QmP (Qualitatswein mit Pradikat). To attain the Beerenauslese category, the natural sugar content of the grapes must reach approximately 26 to 30 percent sugar by weight depending on the region and the variety. The grapes are usually infected with Botrytis Cinerea (called Edelfäule in German), which shrivels them, thereby concentrating the sugar. The superior wine made from these grapes is very sweet but has enough acidity for proper balance. Beerenauslese wines are quite rare, extremely expensive, and considered one of the world's top dessert wines. These wines will age for many years, during which they develop even more complexity.

‘Ernie Loosen has single-handedly put German wine on the world stage and in the 21st century. He has done it by a mixture of irreverence, tireless traveling and an uncompromising quest for quality.’ Jancis Robinson, Decanter April 2005
