"One of the greatest sites in the middle Mosel, the Wehlener Sonnenuhr is a steep, south-facing wall of slate. Dr. Manfred Prum's interpretation of Sonnenuhr Riesling results in some of the Mosel's most multifaceted wines. This auslese offers a piercing scent of slate, then the palate is awash in peach, pear and lime notes, intricately layered in the dense, yet clear texture. Beautifully defined by a firm, well-integrated structure, with an endless finish. Drink now through 2020."
"Complex aromas of honeyed minerals, slate, and red fruits can be discerned in the nose of the 2001 Riesling Auslese Wehlener Sonnenuhr. Medium-bodied, this is a deep, pure, and powerful wine with outstanding depth, concentration and length. Candied red currants dominate this well-strewn offering's luscious yet delineated character."

Fruity & Smooth
smoked salmon, stuffed pork chops, gorgonzola
This Auslese tastes like it was bottled yesterday. It has all the classic aromas a Mosel Riesling plus mouthfilling flavors of ripe apple/pear and a tinge of honey suckle. The long persistant finish goes on and on and on
