DR. LOOSEN WEHLENER SONNENUHR RIESLING GG ALTE REBEN
DR. LOOSEN

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 100 years on their own original rootstocks, and are farmed sustainably. These specific grapes are grown on the very old Laichen and Sandpichter parcels of Wehlener Sonnenuhr. After harvest the grapes are fermented with indigenous yeast in a 3,000-liter, neutral oak cask. The wine is matured on the full lees for 12 months with no bâtonnage. 

Aromatically the wine has notes of crunchy green apples, lemon zest, and spicy cloves. The palate is extremely direct with its acidity, with pairing notes of pineapple, wet rock, steel, and a slightly honey-ed finish.
