Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese
|Region||Germany, Mosel, Wehlen|
The famous "sundial" vineyard produces the quintessential Mosel Riesling: delicate and refined, with racy minerality and endless charm. Spätlese is German for "late picked." It has more richness and body than Kabinett because the grapes are allowed to ripen for an extra week or more. The extra hang time on the vine allows for greater development of flavor and aroma. Under close to perfect conditions, we were able to harvest grapes with optimal must weights and acidity levels, producing wines in all quality levels. The vintage also gave us excellent yields, with a beautiful balance of ripeness and acidity. The wines are dense and concentrated, but with the delicate and graceful style of the Mosel.
