The white/golden-colored 2014 Riesling Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Auslese *** (Green Capsule) opens with a very clear, refined and open-hearted bouquet of slate, flint stones, lemons, oranges, ripe peaches, pineapples, lychees and oriental spices. What a fussy berry selection this must have been to get a clarity like this into the nose! Rich, intense and juicy on the first palate, this is a round and (moderately) sweet, highly elegant and finesse-full Auslese with a very long and complex, very salty and juicy finish with fully ripe nectarine flavors and great tension. This is one of the very rare Rieslings from the central Middle Mosel that celebrates its great old vines terroir with such purity, brilliance and finesse. I recommend to age this beauty for at least 7-8 years and to enjoy it over a period of 20 or 30 years. (AP #59) (SR)
This impeccably balanced, only subtly sweet "three-star" Auslese betrays positive botrytis on a nose that suggests truffles and white bread, behind which emerge bittersweet, buddleia-like floral perfume, high-toned almond extract and white peach. Creamy and deep on the palate yet simultaneously juicy in its melding of grapefruit, lemon and fresh white peach, it finishes with a gorgeously lingering interlayering of floral perfume, ripe fruit, piquant, smoky nut oils, citrus and wet stone.
