The 2019 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese was made with fruit harvested at 93° Oechsle. It offers a rather pure and subtly ample nose made of pear puree, vineyard peach, apricot blossom, almond cream, smoky elements, and floral notes. The wine is gorgeously playful and finely chiselled on the palate and leaves a beautifully lingering feel in the creamy yet zesty finish. The after-taste is all about apricot, almond paste, and exotic flavours packed into racy zest.

Very elegant with lovely white fruit and a long, filigree and so delicate finish. Drink or hold.

Sun-drenched yellow-cherry and apricot notes extend from nose to palate in this deeply concentrated yet fresh-fruited spätlese. Zippy and spry, it pulsates with rich, ripe peach and tangerine flavors as well as a smoky, lingering finish. This decadent medium-sweet wine is drinking beautifully now but should hold through 2030.
