The Wine: Cassis, leafy/herbal tones and increased and pronounced ripeness, and intense mineral notes on the nose. On the palate it is ripe and intense, with a talcy grip. Less about the fruit at this stage and more about the shape, texture and weight.
The Review: Jean Fisch and David Rayer, Mosel Fine Wines - 96pts “The 2021er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese offers a superbly complex and pure fresh nose of candied grapefruit, vineyard peach, verbena, almond cream, smoke, and a hint of cassis. The wine proves superbly honeyed and creamy on the palate, where riper elements of pineapple, honeyed peach, and apricot are wrapped in candied citrusy fruits. The wine is intense and still quite broad but the finish is already pure and hugely long. This is a splendid refined Auslese, which just needs time to develop all its facets. 2036-2061”
