2013 Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Sonnenuhr means 'sundial' in German, and kabinett means this is at the drier end of the spectrum style-wise. Once again, it is appley and limey with that telltale 'wet stone' character on the nose, whilst the palate is crisp and crunchy, low in alcohol (about 8.5%), with zippy citrusy flavours, a flinty texture, and a long, steely finish with barely any sweetness. Awesome with oysters kilpatrick.

Winemaker's Notes

This precipitously steep and rocky vineyard, Wehlener Sonnenuhr (VAY-len-er ZON-en-ooer) yields some of the most elegant and sophisticated white wines in the world. The classic blue slate soil gives the wine a delicate, crisp acidity that perfectly balances the pure peach and lemon fruit. It’s a charming wine that dances gracefully on the palate.

Expert Reviews

Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage) says
The 2015 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett is clear and flinty on the nose and delivers the typical ripe, lush and sensual fruit aromas of this famous Grand Cru. Piquant and racy, but also lush and juicy on the palate, this is a pure, fine and elegant but pretty sweet Kabinett.

Nick Stock (2008 Vintage) says
This moves into classic Mosel stone fruits, with ripe peach aromas and flavours and just a hint of lemon/lime citrus. There's an impressive sense of purity and balance with lingering attractive flavours; this punches well above the kabinett station in terms of resonance and intensity.
