Kabinett is the lightest, most delicate style of Riesling in Germany, produced from the earliest harvested grapes in the best vineyard sites. Because of their moderate alcohol and vibrant, slate-infused acidity, Mosel Riesling Kabinetts are some of the most elegant and subtle wines in the world. This densely packed Dr. Loosen Riesling Kabinett shows both delicacy and strength in its aromatic intensity and concentrated texture.
The Mosel’s steep, south-facing slopes create the perfect climate for Riesling, giving the vines ideal exposure to the sun. Generally cool conditions allow the grapes to ripen slowly while retaining bright acidity. Rocky outcroppings and stony soil reflect sunlight and hold in heat, creating very warm microclimates in the best sites and helping to ensure excellent ripeness. Thin topsoil forces the vines to dig deep for water and nutrients, producing vibrant wines that capture the strong minerality of the soil. Dr. Loosen’s single-vineyard vines average 70 years old, all on original rootstock (phylloxera can’t survive in the Mosel, so ungrafted vines are allowed here). Old vines produce naturally lower yields, resulting in higher concentration and richness.
