This precipitously steep and rocky vineyard, Wehlener Sonnenuhr (VAY-len-er ZON-en-ooer) yields some of the most elegant and sophisticated white wines in the world. The classic blue slate soil gives the wine a delicate, crisp acidity that perfectly balances the pure peach and lemon fruit. It's a charming wine that dances gracefully on the palate.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"From younger vines in top parcels, the 2017 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese offers a ripe, intense and spicy-mineral nose with delicious slate and Riesling aromas. On the palate, this is a lush, round, intense and salty-piquant Spätlese with good grip and tension. Lovely and highly stimulating."
