Reviews for 2005 Doctor Loosen Riesling Auslese Erdener Pralat

WS 95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2007
Delicate and pure with tropical fruit lime and vanilla aromas and flavors. The vibrant structure balances the elements and keeps the flavors delineated and persistent. Drink now through 2025. 50 cases imported. –BS

Candied apricot sweet herbs and clove complicated by a hint of high-toned botrytis on the nose. Extremely elegant and airy in spite of its sheer density; candied pineapple fruit is underpinned by nutmeg and a salty minerality.Fine spicy impressively long finish. Enormously drinkable!

The 2005 Erdener Pralat Riesling Auslese displays a positively gaudy nose of orange liqueur musk melon herbal candies and sweet floral perfume. Creamy and rich on the palate this nevertheless follows the trend from last year of retaining plenty of fresh fruit acidity in the Pralat. The gaudy super-ripe and candied flavors dominate in a strong finish but with just enough persistent fresh citricity and with fascinating complementary brown spices and smoke and salt mineral expression. To reference Ernst Loosen's metaphor this hamster's cheeks and belly are stuffed full for a good ten years sleep after which the wine should remain rich and vigorous for another twenty.
