1995 Dr. Loosen - Erdener Prälat Riesling Auslese (93 pts) @dr .loosen ℹ️ This wine is 💯 Riesling from the vineyard of Erdener Prälat in the Mosel, Germany. This vineyard is 1.6 hectares in size with steep south-facing slopes (45°). These old vines grow in red slate soils. 👁 Deep amber color. 👃 Pronounced intensity on the nose. Aromas of petrol, dried apricot, dried mango, canned peach, ripe pineapple, orange peel, quince paste, saffron, candied ginger, and high-end honey. 👄 The wine is medium-sweet, high acidity, low alcohol (7.5%), and medium body. Initially, a touch of spritz on the tip of the tongue, but that faded after being open. A long length finish of dried apricot, quince paste, and saffron. 🔔 The Erdener Prälat wines are always so expressive and powerful. They need age to tame the fruitiness of the wine. The petrol was very obvious when first opened but faded after a few hours. The wine is ripe with a healthy amount of residual sugar (~100 g/l) but stays in complete balance all the way through the lengthy finish. I love the kaleidoscope of fruit aromas combined with the right mix of Botrytis flavors (saffron, ginger, and honey). At 25 years old, this wine still has a long life ahead of it. #vin #lovewine #🍷 #wineterroir #wine #riesling #rieslinglover #germanwine #auslese #mosel #moselwein #drloosen #rieslingwine #deutscherwein #germanriesling
