2019 Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling GG
This GG RÉSERVE reproduces the characteristics of the Grosse Lage Wehlener Sonnenuhr in textbook fashion. The site is dominated by blue slate, and it is often said that Wehlener Sonnenuhr produces the most distinctive blue slate wines. If you were to compare wines to people, a Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling would be like a graceful ballerina. They are very elegant, very fine and playful, with delicate stone fruit aromas, white peach in particular. The actual Sonnenuhr (“sundial”) was built in 1842 by our family relative, Jodocus Prüm, and then became the namesake for the world-renowned Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard. The grapes for this wine grow in the “Laychen,” the old name for a parcel of original, ungrafted vines that are at least 130 years old. When young, these wines are captivatingly fine and playful with floral, citrus and vineyard peach aromas. But the GGR rewards extended cellaring with greater harmony and deeper expression of this extraordinary vineyard.
The refined, mineral-edged top dry Riesling from the Mosel valley's famous Sonnenuhr ("Sundial") vineyard. It is perfect with shell fish, fresh oysters, sushi and grilled fresh fish.
