This precipitously steep, rocky vineyard consistently yields some of the most elegant and sophisticated white wines in the world. The rocky, blue Devonian slate soil of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr (pronounced VAY-len-er ZON-en-ooer) “sundial” vineyard produces quintessential Mosel Riesling: delicate and refined, with racy minerality.

There wasn’t a lot of botrytis in 2018, but what did develop was ideally dried and concentrated making the selection process even more successful. The resulting wine is dense, intensely flavored and rich on the palate. But even at the Auslese level, the Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard retains the elegant structure that is characteristic of this great site.
