2016 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Grosses Gewächs, Dr Loosen

A new wine in Ernie's range, from ungrafted vines in the village of Graach, this is cool, citrus, and very mineral. The finish is saline and very long. Already delicious, it's a GG to drink now (or for many years to come!)

TASTING NOTES

Tasted in late July 2017 and slated for bottling around the end of September, this delivers a brash amalgam of chewy, seed-tinged apple and zesty grapefruit. The palate is firm and substantial, the finish blazingly bright and mouthwateringly salt-tinged – a Grosses Gewächs conveying real energy as well as refreshment.
