The wines of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr possess an excellent structure, show beautiful, ripe aromas and flavours (typically stone fruits, like peach), a fine minerality and great depth and length. Especially after having been aged for some years, their harmony, finesse and expression is unique.
This Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese is a very classical Mosel Riesling Auslese, a fine yet racy wine, combining elegance and complexity and showing a beautiful balance between
fruit aromas and flavours, a crisp acidity and fine minerality. Although this wine is very appealing now already, it will improve a lot with ageing in the years to come and be enjoyable for decades.
"Pure, precise and fresh-tasting, with an intense clarity to the apple, pear and tangerine flavors that feature notes of slate and vanilla. The crystalline finish is long, pure and precise, with hints of smoke and anise. Best from 2014 through 2040. "
"Pale golden yellow. Bright aromas of candied peach, lemon oil and acacia honey. In the mouth, sweet tropical fruit flavors maintain remarkable delicacy in spite of the wine's sheer depth. The extremely long, glossy finish is underscored by slate and a refined spiciness. This needs time in bottle, but will be a great auslese."

"Classic flavors of white peach and tangerine are forward and ripe while maintaining a lithe, delicate focus, the aroma layered and driven by elegant slate notes. The balance is impeccable, promising a long and harmonious development in the cellar. "
