Dr Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Grosses Gewächs Riesling, Mosel 2015

From Dr Loosen’s famous “sundial” vineyard, in the village of Wehlen, produces delicate and refined Mosel Rieslings with racy minerality and endless charm from 100 years old vines, completely hand-picked, fermented with indigenous yeasts in a neutral oak cask, and kept on the full lees for a year before bottling. The extended maturation time allows the wine to develop greater texture and to find its natural harmony.

2015 Wehlener Sonnenuhr GG Dry Riesling offers very clear, elegant, intense and subtle slate and gentle stone fruit and white flower aromas. On the palate delicate apricot, citrus fruit with lychee and Darjeeling tea. Perfect sweetness and acidity balance. Full-bodied, fruity mineral, very complex, elegant and puristic.

AWARDS AND REVIEWS

17,5/20 Jancis Robinson
"The Sonnenuhr uses stone fruit and a gentle floral aroma to distinguish itself from the other Loosen renditions. The palate pleases with soft apricot and a very rich texture. Will appeal to the aficionados of the sweeter and softer style of Grosses Gewächs, a subtle citrus-peel edge satisfies the demand for freshness."
