About The Wine

Since taking control of his family's 200+-year-old winery in 1988, Ernst Loosen has taken Dr. Loosen to new heights.

His commitment to quality has seen him revolutionise the way that Dr. Loosen approached their great vineyard holdings on the slopes and valleys of the Mosel. He insisted on lower yields, farming with organic sprays rather than chemicals, and a gentler approach in the winery. It was an approach that was ahead of its time and has seen Dr. Loosen rise to be one of the benchmark producers of this famous region.

The Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard ("Sundial of Wehlen") is one of the most famous vineyards in the middle Mosel. It's one of Erni Loosen's pride and joys.

It's pitch-perfect Kabnett from one of the great Riesling vineyards in the world.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Wehlener Sonnenuhr (pronounced VAY-len-er ZON-en-ooer) was rated “First Vineyard” (Erste Lage) in the 1868 Prussian classification of the Mosel, and “Great First-Class” in the Wine Atlas of Germany by Hugh Johnson & Stuart Pigott (1995). In 2012 it was classified as Grosse Lage (Grand Cru) by the VDP, Germany’s top growers association. This precipitously steep, rocky vineyard consistently yields some of the most elegant and sophisticated white wines in the world. The mineral-rich, blue Devonian slate soil gives the wine a crisp acidity that perfectly balances the pure peach and lemon fruit.With the lightest soil of all the vineyards on the long hillside from Bernkastel to Wehlen, the famous “sundial” vineyard produces the quintessential Mosel Riesling: delicate and refined, with racy minerality and endless charm. The early picked Kabinett Prädikat (ripeness level) is the lightest and most delicate style of German Riesling that is possible to produce. Nothing can compare with its elegance and subtlety, as this wine proves with its fine fruitiness and exquisite balance.

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
