Blue slate is the most typical type of slate in the Middle Mosel. It provides vital nutrients to the vines and gives the wines a mineral edge that enhances the naturally high acidity of Riesling. The vineyards are characterised by incredibly steep slopes, mineral richness and excellent drainage. This combination results in zippy, mineral-drenched wines that are fruity, crisp and very refreshing. Winemaker Ernst Loosen is also one of Germany's most respected wine personalities.
It is bright and pure with the classic white peach fruit and floral, flinty minerality that is so typical from blue slate. The lush and fruity mid-palate leads to a deliciously firm, delicate finish. This wine makes an elegant aperitif and is an excellent match for seafood, spicy Asian cuisine and lighter dishes. Suggested serving temperature: 45–50°F (7–10°C).
