For over 200 years, the Loosen family has been at the helm of the Weingut Dr Loosen, one of Germany's largest producers of white wines, in the Moselle Valley.
After studying archaeology, Ernst Loosen took over the running of the family estate in 1988, after having gained experience in wineries in Austria, Burgundy, Alsace and California.
As one of the 200 producers belonging to the VDP, the prestigious German association of German Prädikat Wine Estates, the Weingut Dr.Loosen produces, from its 20-hectare vineyard, fine wines that authentically expressg the typicity of their terroir of origin.
The Wehlener Sonnenuhr parcel is located in the Bernkastel vineyard, which produces some of the finest white wines in the world. The old Riesling vines are planted on steep slopes overlooking the Moselle, whose blue slate soil lends a delicious minerality.
The 2020 Riesling Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese from Weingut Dr. Loosen is made from vines that are around 60 years old.
The grapes are responsibly cultivated on the "sundial" plot, from which the name of the wine is derived, and are harvested late in order to concentrate the residual sugar necessary for the production of Spätlese.
The new classification introduced in 2012 by the 200 members of the VDP includes the designation "Grosses Gewächs" or otherwise called "Great Growth".
Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese 2020 by Weingut Dr Loosen falls into the category of "Grosses Gewächs". It is made from six of the most sought-after terroirs and is therefore exclusively vinified as a Grand Cru.
Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese 2020 by Weingut Dr Loosen is a 100% Riesling.
Throughout the tasting, a beautiful minerality is combined with a delicate acidity as well as aromas of white flesh fruits (white peach) and citrus fruits (lemon).
