So different. Scents of Apricots, honey, lime, spices, passionfruit and minerals. A wave of succulent power. Very cleansing. Swathes of limes, kiwifruit, pink grapefruit, honey and spice. Full bodied and luscious but never heavy. Waters Wine ’18.
The 2016 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese (AP 13 17) is clear, fresh and vegetal/floral on the pretty complex but clear and refreshingly flinty nose. Bottled with 8.5% alcohol, this is a lush, piquant and well-structured Spätlese with good grip and a perceptible sweetness. The finish is intense and complex and reveals a firm mineral structure. 94 points, Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate #236
