The Sundial vineyard in Wehlen is almost nothing but broken shards of blue Devonian slate. 100% Riesling from vines over 60 years old on average. Cool fermentation in a combination of stainless-steel tanks and Fuder barrels, half fermented with natural yeasts, half with cultured yeasts. Alcohol 7.5%; RS 43.1g/L; TA 9g/L.
Elegant and playful with plenty of white fruit, then stunning freshness at the very crisp, lemony finish. Drink or hold. 92 points. Stuart Pigott, jamessuckling.com August 2020
The 2019 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett is fresh and reductive on the attractively clear and aromatic nose with white stone fruit aromas. On the palate, this is a sharp, precise, and juicy Sonnenuhr with remarkable finesse and crunchy slate aromas. Lingering salinity and piquancy. Tasted at the domain in September 2020. 91 points.
