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 Skurnik Wines has to say about this wine...

The name Ritsch derives from the brittle grey slate soil. Due to the fragility of the soil it is not possible to build roads in this site. Up until shortly after WWII the Ritsch was one of the most esteemed sites along the Mittelmosel. By the end of the 19th century it even belonged to best-rated sites along the whole Mosel.
