Food Pairings for Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese
The wines of 2012 are characterized by a stunning purity of fruit and a density of flavor that gives each wine a very clear expression of its style and terroir. The 2012 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese is rich and juicy, with a mouth-filling texture from the fully ripe fruit. It has excellent concentration and a penetrating persistence of fruit on the palate. 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 time on the vine allows for greater development of flavor and aroma, what Ernst Loosen refers to as "aromatic ripeness." This "Prädikat" (ripeness level) often gives you the purest expression of the vineyard's terroir.
