Loewen Riesling Kabinett Longuicher Herrenberg 2016
New York Times 20 Wines Under $20!
This estate in the Mosel dates back to 1803. Carl Loewen locates and resurrects forgotten or overlooked vineyards to source from. He’s a true traditionalist, even using a pitchfork instead of a pump to transfer grapes into the crusher. This is pure Mosel Riesling from ungrafted vines planted in 1903! It has mouthwatering acidity, with notes of ginger, quince, spring flowers, and lime. Practicing organic.
