Wehlener Sonnenuhr45°Southeast slopeSoil type, Blauer Schiefer, clay slate from the Devonian periodCharacter of the wines: racy, fruity and full-bodied wines with elegance and play

"A prototypical riesling Kabinett wine for this world famous vineyard site. Fabulous white peach and honeysuckle aromas. So silky and elegant that you don’t want to leave this beautiful interplay between filigree acidity and restrained succulence. Very limited production. Drink or hold."

The southwest facing Wehlener Sonnenuhr is located across from Wehlen on the Mosel. The site climbs at a very steep slope gradient of 60 to 100 percent. The vines grow on pure, medium deep, weathered Devon slate debris soil. The rock content is high. The long sunshine duration, the intense heat radiation of the soil, and the proximity of the Mosel determine the microclimate of this great vineyard. The Sonnenuhr vineyard is named after the sundial built by the vintner Jodocus Prüm of Wehlen, who built a sundial in Wehlen and in Zeltingen vineyards in the year 1843. The site was originally called “Wehlener” and “Zehlener”.
