An auction lot of 2005 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese A.P. #22 exudes lightly caramelized apple and white peach while preserving a clear, luscious citricity, although its counterpoint of creaminess and brightness is not quite as striking as that exhibited by the auction Spatlese. Even as one recognizes how concentrated this wine is by botrytis and how honeyed the consequent palate impression, it retains a remarkable degree of refreshing juiciness, delicacy of texture, and refinement of flavor, all especially evident in the finish. And one can rest assured this has the structure to age satisfyingly for 30 or more years. (DS)
(auction wine) Pale golden yellow. Fine bouquet of blackcurrant, tropical fruits and sweet herbs.Rich on the palate, with a compelling tension between its lusciously sweet apricot fruit and sizzling salty minerality.Unctuous yet lively, with a long, complex finish. Maybe even better than my score suggests. 94+ points. (JP)
