From the two oldest plots (80-90 years old and 120 years old), the fuder-fermented 2018 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese offers great precision and aromas of tropical fruit intertwined with very fine slate on the nose. On the palate, the wine is mouth-filling and salty-piquant, with mango and slate flavors on the racy finish. This is dangerous stuff, very dangerous, yet it's also tight and tensioned. This is, for the moment, the finest and most stimulating Wehlener Sonnenuhr. Dangerous. Really dangerous. Tasted in March 2019. (SR)
These are the oldest vines that the estate owns, planted in the nineteenth century and located directly under the sundial in the Sonnenuhr. The wine is youthful and an absolute classic in the making, offering up a nascently complex bouquet of pear, white cherries, vanilla bean, slate, wild yeasts, bee pollen and a floral topnote redolent of orange blossoms. On the palate the wine is medium-full, bright and soil-driven, with a good core, fine bounce and grip and a long, zesty and very classy finish. This has a beautiful kiss of fruit on the attack and impressive backend mineral drive. (Drink between 2024-2060)
