About This Wine

This precipitously steep, rocky vineyard consistently yields some of the most elegant and sophisticated white wines in the world. The mineral-rich, blue Devonian slate soil produces quintessential Mosel Riesling: delicate and refined, with racy minerality. Wehlener Sonnenuhr (pronounced VAY-len-er ZON-en-ooer) was rated “First Vineyard” (Erste Lage) in the 1868 Prussian classification of the Mosel, and “Great First-Class” in the Wine Atlas of Germany by Hugh Johnson & Stuart Pigott (1995). In 2012, it was officially named a Grosse Lage (Grand Cru) by the VDP, Germany’s association of top growers. Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese Spätlese [SHPAYT-lay-zuh] is German for “late picked.” It ha more richness and body than a Kabinett because the grapes are allowed to ripen for an extra week or more. The extra hang time on the vine allows for greater development of flavour and aroma, what Ernst Loosen refers to as “aromatic ripeness.” Because of its intensity and concentration, without botrytis, the Spätlese Prädikat (ripeness level) often gives you the purest expression of the vineyard’s terroir.
