Description

Dr Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese, Mosel, Germany, 2021    

Grape: 100% Riesling, hand harvested from 60 year old vines, effectively unoaked, 59g/l residual sugar

This sweet white wine has a beautiful mix of honeycomb, pineapple and hints of complex tropical fruit.

This extremely steep vineyard produces the most elegant and delicate white wines in the world. The stony, shallow blue slate soil gives the wine a delicate, fresh acidity as well as a unique finesse. The wines of Wehlener Sonnenuhr are exceptionally charming in their youth, with a beguiling scent of white peach and green apple. Yet they will also age well for many decades.

"There is a beautiful harmony in this white, between the well-defined flavors of apricot, cantaloupe, baked pear and allspice, and its prominent acidity that lends it a vivid structure. The texture is sleek and the finish is long, luscious and filled with marzipan paste. It is so delicious now, but with 5-10 years, this will be a real beauty."

93/100 points, Aleks Zecevic, WINE ENTHUSIAST, September 2023

The famous “sundial” vineyard produces the quintessential Mosel Riesling: delicate and refined, with racy minerality and endless charm. Spätlese is German for “late picked.” It has more richness and body than 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.
