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. It has very light soil and the purest blue slate of any Mosel vineyard. This gives the wine a lively minerality and a delicate, crisp acidity that perfectly balances the bright flavors of white peach and lemon. It’s an aristocratic and charming wine that dances gracefully on the palate.
The soil in Wehlen is composed of broken and weathered shards of the purest blue slate in the Mosel valley. This purity is reflected in the wines.
