Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

"Made with 50% of perfect botrytis that brought acidity, the 2015 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese displays a clear, fresh and concentrated nose with very fine raisin, lemon and grapefruit flavors. Light, piquant and salty on the palate, this is a concentrated and aromatic, yet super refreshing and well-structured Auslese. It has a pure and stimulatingly salty finish. The wine is elegant, crisp and very digestible, but can age for 20 and more years. It has 8.5% alcohol." - Wine Advocate *(94 points)*

The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen (pronounced loh-zen) assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that with ungrafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany’s best-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class wines. To achieve this, Ernst dramatically reduced his crop size and stopped all chemical fertilization, preferring only moderate use of organic fertilizers. And, most importantly, he turned to gentler cellar practices that allow the wine to develop its full potential with a minimum of handling and technological meddling. Read less
