The Loewen estate has been around since 1803 and boasts some extremely important grand crus sites with some very, very old vines. Of all the underrated estates in the Mosel, it is perplexing that Loewen has stayed under the radar for so long. The wines are pure magic – viscerally expressing the terroir of truly great crus, nurtured by attentive, sustainable vineyard care beyond most growers in the Mosel.

What importer Skurnik Wines has to say about this wine...

Grape: Riesling
Vineyard: all from the Liewener Klostergarten
Soil: Slate
Production: Mosel Fuder & stainless steel

This is an estate wine, all from the Liewener Klostergarten. Some of you will remember this wine when it was a Kabinett. This is now “declassified” as single vineyard labeled wines should denote the highest quality at the estate as well as individuality, so Christopher agreed to declassify the site and just call it “Estate Riesling”. Soils here are a bit richer than the steep sites and the vine material is not nearly as old. Fruit is picked and pressed whole clustr before sedimentation. The juice is racked into Fuder and Stainless steel where it ferments completely with native yeast and without temperature control. Fermentation is stopped by taste and a small addition of SO2 is added to stabilize the wine.
