For the largest part very old, ungrafted vineyards (often more than 80 years old). Fine but also very stony soils of blue Devon slate, mostly quite light. The oldest and best parcels are often located on small terraces with very little soil, producing very low yields (10-20 hl/ha) of exceptional quality. This site produces our greatest dry and classically dry (off-dry) Auslese wines as well as many of our top botrytis dessert wines. All wines grown on the Sonnenuhr have an incomparably elegant ripeness, relative to the vintage. Our winery has the largest holdings of this top Middle Mosel site, which in total covers less than 20 hectares.
