Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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
