Winemaker's Notes:

The Spatlese from the Wehlener Sonnenuhr shows a concentration of ripe fruit such as ripe apricot, combined with ripe peach aromas.

It is ideal with very spicy foods, such as Thai or even Indian style dishes.

About Dr Pauly-Bergweiler:

The passion for good and great wine is practically inborn in the owners of the wine estate. Dr. Peter Pauly, born in 1939, has a Ph.D. in agricultural science and is the offspring of the long-standing wine families Bergweiler and Prüm, first mentioned in official records in 1156.

Dr. Pauly's grandfather, Zacharias Bergweiler, was for many decades one of the most respected wine-growers on the Mosel. It was the grandfather's wine estate which Dr. Pauly took over while still a student, subsequently completing his doctorate and writing a thesis on the economic opportunities offered by the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer wine-growing region.

The vineyards are mainly on steep, difficult-to-cultivate river valley hillsides and are planted predominantly with late maturity Riesling grapes, which place high demands on their location. A small percentage of the vineyards are planted with Müller-Thurgau and Spätburgunder (like Pinot Noir), which are bottled either as a remarkable red wine, as a Weissherbst (a special rosé) or as a pressed white summer wine. These wines have proven to be popular additions to the already diversified collection of Riesling white wines.
