Brimming with peach and flowers. Very juicy and elegant. Beautiful balance and a very clean finish. Drink any time during the next decade.
After surprisingly lean, hard-edged and not very fruity Grosses Gewächs and Kabinett renditions of this famous site, I am relieved to easily recognize Wehlener Sonnenuhr in this glass of Spätlese. Ripe pear and Persian melon are garlanded in heady heliotrope and lily, and the palate is lush and creamy while preserving an ample measure of primary fresh fruit juiciness. The finish, at once soothingly and stimulatingly sustained, gains counterpoint from its stony inflections as well as a bittersweet note of vanilla bean, while the sense of sweetness is supportive but admirably restrained. A peek at the analysis reveals acidity in excess of nine grams, which certainly goes a long way toward explaining what is holding in check the effects of high residual sugar. And that analysis also leads one to ponder how creaminess, liquid florality and soothing characteristics typical for a Spätlese from this site are perfectly compatible with high acidity. (DS)
