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.
The grapes of this Auslese gold cap are selected during harvest and contain a certain amount of botrytis, resulting in a higher concentration of the grape juice. It is a "limited edition" and shows itself silky, harmonious and refined, with apricot, apple, lime and mineral aromas and flavours on a light-weight frame. Balanced, its hidden structure is evident in the tanginess on the finish and lingering aftertaste of baked apple.
"Plush, lively and lusciously creamy, with plenty of snap to the ripe peach, white cherry and ruby grapefruit flavors. This shows plenty of refinement, offering hints of white chocolate and sage honey. Drink now through 2035."
"Pale golden yellow. Apricot, quince and persimmon dominate the bouquet, along with a hint of honeyed botrytis. Smoky wet-stone minerality keeps the sweet, ripe peach fruit in check. This rich, deep auslese is both sweet and a touch austere on the understated finish.
