"Sonnenuhr" means sundial. The vineyard is facing the small town of Wehlen, located in the middle of a long steep curved slate slope on the Mosel, with a south-southwest exposure.
The wine exhibits a fresh fruity bouquet of peach and apricots with honey and spicy notes. Strong, sweet and long flavors. Elegant, full bodied and luscious wine with good minerality and acidity on the palate.
"I loved the 2015 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese, which comes from the oldest estate in the middle Mosel region. It offers a vibrant, racy, medium to full-bodied style that carries beautifully pure white peach, lime, sugared mint, and honeyed mineral aromas and flavors. It’s textured and rich, yet beautifully balanced and vibrant."
