Berres' 2005 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Auslese Gold Capsule A.P. #7 is a strikingly successful harbinger of things no doubt to come at this estate and a wine well worth a search of the proverbial marketplace and a couple of decades of scrutiny from the safety of your cellar. Smelling of pineapple, lemon candy, sassafras, pear nectar, and nut oils, this wine wafts its way across the palate with invigorating and succulent fresh-fruitedness, faintly oily texture, and a marvelous complexity of citrus, sweet herbal, floral, and nut oil nuances. More of the same enticing juiciness, delicacy, and complexity follow on the finish, with the strongest notes being of pear nectar, pineapple, and sassafras. This Riesling's 9.5% alcohol serves as a reminder that young Berres allowed the fermentation to progress further than is typical nowadays for a wine of such high must weight, and he has achieved a wonderful balance: an Auslese not overwhelmingly sweet, yet elegant and buoyant despite its relatively high alcohol. Congratulations are in order!

Drink 2009 - 2028
Tastes like there's a touch of botrytis. Lemon candy, spice and marzipan mingle with the sweetness and the lively structure. Almost sweet-tart, like an eiswein, then ends with a mouthwatering tanginess. Very intense. Best from 2009 through 2028. 23 cases made.

If you are a Riesling newbie, this is an excellent place to begin. It shows all the bright fruitiness and refreshing acidity one should expect from the grape. Wrapped up in a very easy-drinking style, it can be enjoyed as a sipper or as a very versatile food partner with a mildly spiced seafood pasta dish.

This crisp, refreshing Riesling is the dry counterpart to the fruity, off-dry Dr. L Riesling. Together, these two wines represent the entry-level from Dr. Loosen, capturing the elegant and racy characteristics of steep, slate-soil Mosel vineyards

Very compact, (a drier styled Riesling), having a bold ripeness
coming from grapes of deep maturity; an elegant and long finish.
Recommendation The best of companions for seafood, Asian cuisine, summer
salads and light cheeses. Serve well chilled.

FRITZīs RIESLING grows in a very small and special part of Rheinhessen called the "Roter Hang" meaning the "red hill". The "Roter Hang" is located between the village of Nackenheim and the village of Nierstein 20 kilometers south of the city of Mainz.
The characteristic name of this area is ascribable to its red slate soil. The red color comes from a high portion of minerals in the soil. In addition the vinyards are very close to the river Rhein, they are facing south-east and they have steep slopes.
The combination of those four factors: the red slate soil, the closeness to the river, the exponation to the sun and the steepness of the vinyards are the perfect combination to produce a special wine like FRITZīs RIESLING

White fruit flavours abound in this charming white wine from the Mosel region. Medium-bodied with abundant quince, grape and melon notes, this Riesling has a balanced finish, incorporating a lime zesty acidity. Pair with Korean cuisine such as stir-fried and pan-fried dishes.

Elegant and lively in character, yet the apricot, honey and citrus notes are subdued. Slightly one-dimensional now, with a good underlying structure. 10 cases made.
