Cowboy up, wine peeps!
This…just in from Loosen Bros USA National Sales Manager Brian “The Harlanator” Harlan:
The Houston Rodeo Uncorked! Wine Show attracts wines from across Texas, the United States and throughout the world. 1,789 wines from 591 wineries were judged at the show’s International Wine Competition in November.
We’re kicking up our spurs to announce that our 2009 Dr. Loosen Blue Slate Kabinett Riesling was awarded a Double Gold Medal and designated as “Class Champion” in the ‘semi-sweet’ Riesling category. Yeeha!
Our estate-grown Blue Slate Riesling Kabinett embodies the racy, mineral-driven style of the steep, blue slate vineyards in the middle Mosel. It’s a crisp and juicy Riesling that pairs well with spicy Asian (not to mention cowboy barbecue) cuisine. Wine & Spirits gives it 90 points.
If you’re in Houston this spring, be sure to attend these other Wine Rodeo events:
February 20 — Our Blue Slate Riesling will be poured at the ‘Roundup and Best Bites’ Event.
March 5 — We also will provide a six liter bottle of the wine to be donated to the ‘Champion Auction’.
