"The 2016 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese offers clear, fresh and precise tropical fruit on the nose with aromas of nectarines and white peaches but also smoky notes from crushed rocks. Incredibly lush and endlessly juicy, with grippy reduction and lingering salinity, this is a highly stimulating and mouthwatering Spätlese in the old style: not too sweet but with a good amount of sulfur. Tasted February 2018."

"Shows a good stretch from start to finish, with high acidity balanced by ripe apple and Key lime pie flavors. Delicate, yet expressive and vibrant, with a lasting, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2029. 300 cases imported."

VINEYARD: This precipitously steep and rocky vineyard yields some of the most elegant and sophisticated white wines in the world. The classic blue slate soil gives the wine a delicate, crisp acidity that perfectly balances the pure peach and lemon fruit.

It has more richness and body than Kabinett because the grapes are allowed to ripen for an extra week or more. The extra hang time on the vine allows for greater development of flavor and aroma.
