"Site-typical scents of apple, pear and vanilla anticipate the fresh fruit intensity of a buoyant, subtly creamy palate, to which a squeeze of fresh lime lends welcome brightness and animation. This finishes with consummate refreshment and admirable transparency to stony and marine mineral nuances."

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).

FERMENTATION: Cool fermentation in a combination of stainless steel tanks and traditional Fuder barrels; half fermented with natural yeasts, half with cultured yeasts; fermentation stopped by chilling.
