The Spätlese from the Wehlener Sonnenuhr is harvested about 3 weeks after the Riesling Kabinett. Therefore, it shows much more concentration of ripe fruit, such as ripe apricot,
combined with ripe peach aromas.
This is ideal with very spicy foods, such as Thai or even Indian style dishes.
"The nose is a mixture of brown spices, golden apple and citrus aromas in this white, which is ripe and sweet, yet vibrant and focused, with a racy structure carrying pâte de fruit, Golden Delicious apple and apricot flavors. This has intensity and length, but needs time to integrate and shed its baby fat. Best from 2014 through 2030. 500 cases made. "
"Lush, honeyed and tropically fruited, this epitomizes the Dr. Pauly-Bergweiler house style. It seems sweeter than many other 2009 spätleses, with its considerable sugar evident on the long finish. Drink it on its own, or alongside spicy Asian cuisine."
