Dr. Loosen Bernkasteler Lay Riesling Eiswein 2002
|Region||Germany, Mosel, Bernkastel|
Bernkasteler Lay is situated between the Dr. Loosen estate house and the village of Bernkastel. The soil is predominantly slate, but is heavier and deeper than in the neighboring villages of Wehlen and Graach. This site also has a slightly gentler slope than the estate's other vineyards. It produces richly textured, assertive wines.
Rich and graceful, this '02 eiswein layers its apricot, peach and mineral flavors on a firm structure, leaving the essence of peach and a hint of vanilla on the finish. It ends with a tangy note. Drink now through 2015. 100 cases made.
