Weingut Loersch "Blauschiefer" Riesling Trocken 2020 - Mosel, Germany
A terroir-shaped, mineral steep slope Riesling from the Moselle with a defining interplay of sweetness and acidity, expressive and harmonious.
The grapes for this wine come from the slate slope in the Leiwen monastery garden. The terroir is criss-crossed with blue slate. The yield is around 80 hl / ha and the grapes are picked by hand. The wine is produced through spontaneous fermentation with wild, natural yeasts. The fermentation time is a total of two and a half months.
The Loersch family can look back on 375 years of winemaking tradition and was called Weingut Loersch-Eifel until 2011. Alexander Loersch has been responsible for the quality of the wines since 2002 and took over the winery from his father Ernst-Albrecht Loersch in 2009. His wines are rapidly gaining recognition from the international wine press and are regularly recognized by renowned guides such as Gault Millaut. The Loersch winery with its adjoining guest house is located high above the Moselle valley in Leiwen / Zummethöhe, with a fantastic panoramic view of one of the most beautiful Moselle loops.
