Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnennuhr Riesling Spatlese 2016

Spätlese is German for "late picked." It has more richness and body than Kabinett because the grapes are allowed to ripen for an extra week or more. The extra time on the vine allows for greater development of flavor and aroma, what Ernst Loosen refers to as "aromatic ripeness."

Ernst Loosen was born into a great tradition of German winemaking. Since the Dr. Loosen estate on the Mosel River has been in his family for over 200 years, you’d think it only natural for Ernst to take up the family legacy as a profession. The truth is, though, that as a youngster Ernst was more fascinated by the numerous Roman ruins in the area than by the family vineyards. So he went off to college to study archaeology. In the mid-’80s, however, Ernst was faced with a decision. His father was ready to turn the estate over to the next generation and none of his brothers or sisters were old enough or interested enough to take it on. We could be melodramatic and say that it was time for Ernst to face his destiny, but really it was more of an odd-man-out decision. Happily, as it turns out, Ernst found his true calling among the broken slate of his family’s vineyards rather than the hewn stones of an old Roman ruin.
