"The 2015 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett is clear and flinty on the nose and delivers the typical ripe, lush and sensual fruit aromas of this famous grand cru. Piquant and racy, but also lush and juicy on the palate, this is a pure, fine and elegant but pretty sweet Kabinett. However, the wine is very attractive, but probably not as concentrated or complex as the corresponding Würzgarten."

"The Sundial of Wehlen" - This precipitously steep, rocky vineyard consistently yields some of the most elegant and sophisticated white wines in the world. Wehlener Sonnenuhr (pronounced VAY-len-er ZON- en-ooer) is 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). The mineral-rich, blue Devonian slate soil gives the wine a crisp acidity that perfectly balances the pure peach and lemon fruit.

With the lightest soil of all the vineyards on the long hillside from Bernkastel to Wehlen, the “sundial” vineyard produces quintessential Mosel Riesling: delicate and refined, with racy minerality. The Kabinett Prädikat is the lightest and most delicate style of German Riesling. Nothing can compare with its elegance and subtlety, as this wine proves with its fine fruitiness and exquisite balance.
