Loosen's and Barry's Riesling Rocked the Wine World!

SEND PAGE TO FRIEND

Why do we love it?
Walhalla Loosen Barry is one of those wines that make us love our work so much and the ultimate proof that the world of wine is magical and inexhaustible. As its label suggests, Walhalla is the creation of Ernst Loosen's collaboration with the Barry family, owners of the famous Australian winery! Only a few days after it was released, Walhalla scored 96 pts by James Suckling and something tells us this was only the beggining!

Ernst Loosen has many wine friends around the world and one of them is Peter Barry and his son, Tom. Peter Barry has been at the helm of Jim Barry Winery in the Clare Valley, Australia, for years. These 3 people share the same passion for Riesling. Tom Barry after visiting Loosen’s Winery, decided to work with him in Mosel, for over a year. This is how the idea for Walhalla came about. Ernie is considered by many to be a point of reference regarding German wine, and on the other hand Barrys makes some of the greatest Australian wines. This marriage, as you can predict, was doomed to be epic. The red, granite soils of Erdener Treppchen did their magic and Riesling did the rest. Then, the winemaking process followed Clare Valley standards, just like the Barrys do it. This includes fermentation and maturation on the fine lees in stainless steel tanks. The wine matures for about 2 years in stainless steel tanks and another year in the bottle. The result is exotic, tropical, and simply fantastic.

Needless to say, Walhalla Loosen Barry bottles are extremely few and will sell super-fast.

* Walhalla means Garden of Gods. It was the place where warriors went after death and Odin welcomed them with majestic, full of wine, dinners!

WALHALLA 2016 - LOOSEN BARRY

PAIR IT

with sea bass ceviche with lime and pink grapefruit, oysters with Leche de Tigre, salmon fillet with fennel confit and lemon sauce, or sushi.

Chicken Piccata

  • 2 chicken fillets (breast or thigh)
  • 3 tbsps. of butter
  • 3 juicy lemons
  • 150 ml. white wine (preferably Sauvignon blanc or Assyrtiko)
  • 150 ml. chicken broth, hot
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • Olive oil
  • Flour for all purposes
  • Capers
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

First mush up, in a mortar, a pinch of salt, a few peppercorns, some lemon zest and 1 1/ tablespoon of olive oil.

Cut the fillets along with a sharp knife, creating 2 slices of each breast.

Brush the fillets with the mortar mixture by lightly massage the chicken and then flour the fillets.

In a large pan add 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. When they heat up, we sauté the chicken until it gets a nice golden color and we remove it from the pan.

In the same pan add the broth and the wine. Allow to boil and then put the fillets back into the pan.

Leave it to high heat until the sauce begins to thicken slightly.  As long as the sauce cools, it will thicken even more, so do not let the whole sauce evaporate.

Add 1 tablespoon of butter, the lemon juice from the two lemons and a few slices of lemon, shake the pan and add the capers.

Remove it from the fire, add chopped parsley and serve with thin pasta, rice or boiled potatoes!
