Dr. Loosen Riesling Kabinett Wehlener Sonnenuhr 2011
Wehlener Sonnenuhr is precipitously steep and rocky vineyard which yields some of the most elegant and sophisticated white wines in the world. It has very thin soil and the purest blue slate of any Mosel vineyard. This gives a lively minerality to the wine, along with a delicate and crisp acidity that perfectly balances the bright white peach and lemon fruit. It's an aristocratic and charming wine that dances gracefully on the palate. There is virtually no topsoil in Wehlen, only broken and weathered shards of the purest blue slate in the Mosel valley. This purity is reflected in the wines.
