2018 Loersch Riesling Fels-Terrassen feinherb Mosel
Loersch - Riesling Fels-Terrassen feinherb is an excellent choice for all lovers of fine-dry Rieslings. The Riesling comes from the terraced part of the Trittenheimer Apotheke. Like the Devon terraces, the vines here are 60 to 100 years old. The grapes that are picked for this wine, have just a little more acid than those picked for other wines. This ensures a playful balance between sweetness and acidity in this feinherb Riesling. The wine is fermented the classic way with its own yeasts in a stainless steel tank. Here it stays on the fine lees for a long time. In the glass, the Fels-Terrassen shows its aromatic side. A lot of ripe fruit such as pear, peach, and grapefruit are balanced by spicy notes of ginger and lemongrass. The flow is seductive, once you've started, you can hardly turn the glass off again.
The Loersch winery sits high up on the Zummethöhe above the Moselle loop between the places Leiwen and Tritteheim. It's easy to lose your head in the clouds here, but Alexander Loersch has both feet firmly on the ground. With the steep slopes that he manages, everything else would be fatal. The family is firmly rooted in the region. In 2009 Alexander took over the winery from his parents and is now the thirteenth generation to run it. The Loerschs' location portfolio includes some real gems from the Moselle. Alexander cultivates plots in the "Trittenheimer Apotheke", in "Dhroner Hofberg" and "Piesporter Goldtröpfchen". The plots of the "Trittenheim pharmacy" are a real treasure. The vines there are 50 to 100 years old and grow in a steep, terraced position. Everything here is handmade, and it takes a lot of hard work to produce the Rieslings. The result are dry and sweet wines with impressive clarity, as the old vines and the slate grounds bring a lot of depth and a great flavour. Alexander is known to be a Lieblich drinker, a fan of sweet wines. And you can notice this in his wines. The fine-tart and fruity-sweet Rieslings are a real specialty of the estate and are characterised by a delicate balance of sweetness and acidity as well as their exhilarating lightness. Definitely try it!
