Very clean and focused, with an intensity that belies its delicate profile. Wonderful aromas and flavors of apricot, flowers and slate, with pinpoint balance and a long, almost salty aftertaste. Deceptive and completely disarming in its appeal. Drink now through 2030. *Collectibles* (BS)
This 2003 Goldkapsel Auslese from the Wehlener Sonnenuhr, AP #9, spent three and a half to four years in tank prior to its bottling in 2007. This is a beautiful wine, showing more complexity and refinement than the regular Auslese from this year. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a sophisticated mix of apple, pear, peach, bee pollen, violets, salty minerality and just a touch of honeycomb. On the palate the wine is crisp, fullish and focused, with lovely acids (particularly for 2003), a sense of filigree that is not particularly emblematic of the vintage and lovely length and grip on the complex and light on its feet finish. (Drink between 2020-2060).
