Winemaker Notes

The Treppchen Kabinett always stands out as a young wine, with its precocious red fruits and dense minerality from the red slate soil.

An elegant yet muscular wine, it makes an ideal aperitif, as well as an excellent partner for lighter seafood and poultry dishes. This wine benefits greatly from a few years in the bottle.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits

Firm and delicate, this gives the sense of looking from the top of the rocky Treppchen hill, with the scent of herbs and wildflowers growing between sun-warmed stones. The wine’s ripe lemon fruit is enlivened by a breezy acidity, with a clarity and a hint of ginger spice that bring a pairing with sushi to mind. In fact, this will do justice to any dish that requires a light but firm hand.

The Wine Advocate

Sassafras and candied orange peel characteristic for this site are joined in the nose of Loosen’s 2011 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett by pronounced pepper and cress notes that might have migrated from a Gruner Veltliner. Brighter in its fresh citrus palate suggestions and more focused than its immediate Kabinett siblings, it takes full advantage of the piquancy and bite of zest and cress to deliver a sappy finish of enervating and refreshing persistence. This unusually animated exemplar of its vintage and sector is apt to drink well through at least 2025. Cellarmaster Schug explains that it was fermented largely with cultured yeasts and raised entirely in stainless steel (characteristics true also of the corresponding Urziger Wurzgarten).
