Winemaker Notes

Notes of white peach and grapefruit on the palate flow nicely into racy acidity. Although the 2010 fruit was much riper than the 2009, the acidity was also higher which makes this wine extremely concentrated while still maintaining balance. The 2010 vintage also had lower yields than normal, but what was harvested is truly special.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits

Fragrant notes of peach, tangerine and lemon zest are full bodied yet focused, given the sense of clarity and detail by the underlying acidity. It's harmonious and energetic, and while it's already appealing for its forward fruit and fine balance, it promises to develop more complexity and depth with age.

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

Honeysuckle and heliotrope, pear and white peach subtly glazed with honey; and mingled with nougat comprise the seductive aromatics and creamy yet juicy palate of Loosen’s 2010 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese. Lush yet delicate; confectionary and noticeably ennobled to the point of slight caramelization yet infectiously juicy, this even calls forth a mouthwatering hint of salinity and a cantus firmus of wet slate to perfectly set off the sensual splendors of its finish. It is to me stylistically more an Auslese – albeit a delicate one – but that isn’t to take anything away from its performance, which should remain ravishing over at least the next two decades.

ST 91
International Wine Cellar

Pale golden yellow. Fine aromas of fresh apple and vanilla, plus a hint of acacia honey. Elegant and fine, with a peach element that remains graceful in spite of the wine's depth. With its delicate finish offering brown spices and pleasing length, this is a succulent spatlese style.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Tightly wound, with Golden Delicious apple and ripe pear flavors that feature notes of tarragon and lime. Shows plenty of stone and slate on the crisp finish.
