Dr. Loosen – poster child for German Riesling culture
A wine producer based just outside Bernkastel in the Mosel region of Germany, Dr. Loosen is headed by wine personality Ernst “Erni” Loosen.
The company is easily one of Germany’s most famous Riesling producers, and has won numerous awards for numerous wines from the portfolio.
Today, Dr. Loosen is internationally regarded as the poster child for a rediscovered German Riesling culture.
The Loosen family has been growing Riesling and producing wine in the Mosel valley for over 200 years.
Erni assumed ownership in 1988, embarking on a quest to greatly improve the quality and international reputation of the estate, the Mosel region, and Riesling in general.
Today, Erni is one of the most iconic and influential winemakers in the world, producing a full range of Riesling styles. He has come to be regarded as a kind of “wine ambassador”; he has travelled to 65 countries to promote Riesling. His love of Riesling cannot be denied.
Dr. Loosen’s non-estate wine embodies the elegant and racy style of classic Mosel Riesling. Refreshing and fruity, it has a fine mineral edge that is typical of the region. It is slightly sweet with clean, crisp, lip-smacking acidity that perfectly balances the citrus, stone fruit and wet slate flavours.
