Winemaker Notes

This is Riesling is a refreshing white wine. Due to its individual slate stone notes, it is direct and complex at the same time. The aroma reminds one of citrus fruits and rhubarb. The taste is well-balanced in natural sweetness and acidity. The finish is acidity-driven and makes this Riesling easy to drink.

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett is a perfect match for spicy Asian cuisine. The acidity goes well with the spiciness of wasabi, so it works very well with sushi. Also try it with fried rice and vegetables.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 91
Wine Spectator
This has a smoky allure, displaying ripe, concentrated pineapple, white chocolate and baked peach notes that are framed by a bright acidity and plenty of spice. The rich finish is powered by slate, with touches of sea salt. Drink now through 2024.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
In a flight of five 2009 kabinetts from the Sonnenuhr, this was the most alcoholic (at 9.5% abv), but the extra weight didn’t stand out beyond a bit of extra creaminess on the palate. Hints of lees and slate add complexity to the apple and citrus notes, then linger elegantly on the finish.

Dr. Pauly-Bergweiler, , Germany
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.

Bordeaux Blends

View all wine

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

In the Glass

Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

Perfect Pairings

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secret

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
