Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett Mosel

Riesling from Mosel-Saar-Ruwer

Vintage: 2019
Description: 92 points James Suckling. Elegant and playful with plenty of white fruit, then stunning freshness at the very crisp, lemony finish. Drink or hold. (8/2020) 92 points Wine Enthusiast. A crush of crystalline minerality and delicate spice mingle into luminous white peach and pineapple here. Intensely ripe yet gorgeously pure in fruit, it's a snappy, spine-tingling style of off-dry Riesling that's irresistible young but likely to maintain peak performance through 2027 and hold longer still. (ai) (4/2021) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. 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. "2019 was a great, great year," says Ernst Loosen, whom everyone just calls Ernie, although the quantity is small and at 60 hectoliters per hectare, about 23% below the long-term average. "At the end of the harvest, it became 'spongy.' There was rain and unattractive, washed out botrytis. Only the early botrytis was beautiful, though." Nothing but perfect botrytis grapes are used for Loosen's terrific predicate,s of which the current portfolio has many to offer from 2018 and 2019, even a 2019 Long Gold Capsule from the Erdener Prälat.
