Weingut St. Nikolaus-Hospital
Germany - Mosel   

"Sonnenuhr" means sundial. The vineyard is facing the small town of Brauneberg formerly Dusemond. It's a steep slate slope on the Mosel, with a south-southeast exposure.
Full-bodied Riesling with typical Devonian slate qualities. Luscious fruit; nice minerality, length and acidity.

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Hints of petrol, honeycomb, quince, and mint all emerge from the 2015 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese, a beautifully deep, medium to full-bodied, flawlessly balanced Spätlese that does everything right. Showing more and more minerality, with an almost liquid rock-like character, it has a terrific mid-palate as well as a great, great finish. There are only 110 cases of this produced, but it’s a brilliant wine."

ws logo top100"Founded in the 1400s as a monastery-run hospital, St. Nikolaus-Hospital continues its social mission today as a retirement home, supported by a winery with 44 acres of vineyards. This wine, from the steepest section of the Brauneberger Juffer vineyard, is opulent and structured, the flavor balanced between the fleshiness of ripe peaches and the pleasant, nutty bitterness of their skins. The mineral notes imbue it with a savory hint of smoke, a sultry wine to match with glazed pork ribs."
