Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese 2019 750ml - Germany

The vintage was characterized by an unprecedented heatwave that struck Europe in August with temperatures over 35°C. All in all, the weather conditions were challenging in 2019. On the Mosel, there was not much rain in the time from January until September. Fortunately, we had smaller rain events almost every time when the vines were on the verge of drought stress. This Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling 2019 from the Mosel region of Germany is juicy, with a succulent mouth feel, zippy acidity and lingering finish. Spätlese (a.k.a. late harvest) is produced with grapes that have reached a certain ripeness level that is dictated by German wine law. It is one of the best wines you can find to pair with Thai cuisine or other spicy dishes as it does an amazing job of balancing out the heat of the spice.

It offers clear, ripe and honeyed fruit with crunchy slate aromas. Piquant and juicy on the palate, this is an intense, fruity and classy Spätlese with concise acidity that is sharp as a razor blade yet still needs to be better integrated.
