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. 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. - Wine Advocate
