The Wehlener Sonnenuhr (Sundial) is a plot that is shared between the villages of Wehlen & Zetlingen. It takes its name from the medieval-esque sundial, built in 1842, which still overlooks the vineyard today. Sonnenuhr’s perfectly south facing slopes give it great exposure to the sun and its Devonian slate based soil help retain the warmth and energy of the sun.
Light beech color. The nose is subtle and precise, very vivacious notes of yellow pears and apricots. Playful and medium-plus-bodied, but soft and light in the mouth. Sappy and delicate on the palate and very long in the finish. Well balanced, nothing dominates here.
Pairing: Pairs wonderfully with spicy sushi, chilled shellfish, foie gras terrine, arugula salad, ceviche, tuna tartare.
