Natalie's Score: 94/100

Floral fragrant, medium-bodied Kabinett Riesling from the Mosel Prädikatswein with ripe pear, stone fruit, lemon tarte and mineral flavours on the palate. "Blue Slate" refers to the area of blue Devonian slate in the Middle Mosel producing a more floral Riesling. Pair with mildly spiced dishes.

Riesling Kabinett food pairings: sushi with extra wasabi, roast chicken, spicy pasta dishes, baby greens salad, feta cheese.

From the Mosel Dr. Loosen Blue Slate 2018 is a Riesling Kabinett, fresh on the nose with bright lemon and flinty mineral aromas. Medium-bodied, off-dry with white florals, lip-smacking citrus, ripe pear, apricot and crisp mineral flavours on the palate. Pair with spicier dishes, such as Korean spiced ribs. - Community Wine Reviews
