Those who appreciate a truly great Riesling will find a lot to love in this rich gem filled with fresh, juicy flavor. A flinty, herbal bouquet gives way to nectarine, passion fruit and lime on a remarkably deep, round palate. The refined finish is long and mineral-laced with intriguing salinity. It’s Mosel’s breathtakingly steep south facing slopes, straddling the riverbanks, that can be thanked for the phenomenal Rieslings of the area. No doubt delicious, this long-lived beauty begs for a little more time in the cellar to reach full potential.
The 2020 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett offers a discreet and sublime, complex and very elegant and slightly flinty nose with a coolish and very delicate expression of stewed apricots but also some greenish berries, whereas the first stony character remains. This irresistible and noble bouquet leads to a round and lush yet also refined and savory palate, with coolish apricot flavors on the long and sustainably salty finish that is firmly structured but elegant and highly stimulating. This is a superb, very elegant and complex, sustainably structured Sonnenuhr.
