The vineyard name, Wehlener Sonnenuhr translates to 'The sundial of Wehlen' and is famous throughout the Mosel for its steepness as well as the rocky, blue Devonian slate soils. The wines that hail from this vineyard consistently show racy minerality and elegant structure. The vines age averages around 70 years on their own original rootstocks, and are farmed sustainably. Picked at Kabinett level, the wine is intrinsically more soft and delicate. After harvest, the grapes undergo cool fermentation in a combination of stainless steel tanks and traditional Fuder barrels. Half was fermented with natural yeasts, half with cultured yeasts, and then the process was stopped by chilling.
Aromatically the wine is extremely stony and flinty, with background scents of honeysuckle and white flowers. The palate has heaps of wonderfully juicy, white peaches as well as a citrus driven acidity that goes on and on.
