"Exuberantly fresh white peach and grapefruit flavors are cut by streaks of lime in this concentrated, juicy kabinett. Lip smackingly sweet and tart, it offsets its forward, fruity facade with a core of bracing minerality. The finish is marked by lingering slate and smoke tones."

"The 2016 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett (AP 08 17) has a clear, fruity and typically smoky nose that indicates depth and mineral tension. On the palate, this is a mouth-filling and persistently salty Riesling with great grip and, again, mineral tension. This is just a gorgeous Kabinett with a mouthwatering finish. Tasted February 2018."

"Site-typical scents of apple, pear and vanilla anticipate the fresh fruit intensity of a buoyant, subtly creamy palate, to which a squeeze of fresh lime lends welcome brightness and animation. This finishes with consummate refreshment and admirable transparency to stony and marine mineral nuances."
