Riesling Beerenauslese, Dr. Loosen

A dessert wine made with Riesling grapes from the Mosel River region in Germany. The soil and unique growing conditions here make for a noble palette, from which this winemaker crafts art. Beerenauslese denotes that this is the 2nd sweetest classification of quality-controlled wines in Germany. The grapes will lose about half of their weight in water to botrytis (previously described here). This wine was syrupy, dense, packed with flavor, and had a tiny bit of effervescence to it. Ripe peach, green pear, and honey. Great to coat the stomach after a heavy meal!curious loosen BA
