WEHLENER SONNENUHR — The famous “Sundial” vineyard facing the small town of Wehlen across the Mosel produces very full-bodied, luscious wines. The vineyard’s site is as perfect as it gets. It is located in the middle of a long steep curved slate slope, which stretches five kilometers from Bernkastel to Zeltingen. The precious wines from the Sonnenuhr vineyard led to a solid regional economic foundation, and the citizens of Wehlen, mostly the Bergweilers and Pruems, were able to build a suspension bridge, which is today a historical monument and, like the sundial, a local landmark.
This long steep curved slate slope with a South-South-West orientation consists of mostly Devon slate residual soils with varying parts of topsoil and mineral stone.
RES. SUGARS: 59.5 G/L
ACIDITY: 9.1 G/L
Due to its individual slatestone notes it is straight ahead and complex at the same time. The smell reminds to citrus fruit and pieplant. The taste is well balanced in natural sweetness and acidity. The finish is acidity driven and makes this Riesling easy to drink.
