Dr. Pauly-Bergweiler Riesling Spätlese Wehlener Sonnenuhr 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Intense on the nose, a bit earthy but full of spicy orchard fruits and baked citrus notes with a touch of cranberry. Enters the mouth on the sweet side, but at the same time with fabulous acids so there's that classic sweet/tart thing going on that I love in Riesling. The flavors are a bit spicy and run the gamut from apricot to golden raspberry, with hints of green apple and orange in between. Decidedly fruity, this has a rather classic Spatlese feel to it and a lovely finish, bright, juicy and faintly chalky. Not a sophisticated wine that I would cellar for long, but it is a heck of a Riesling fruit bomb. 90pts

The most important asset of the Dr. Pauly-Bergweiler Wine Estate consists of its vineyards. Extensive care of these vineyards, combined with intentionally low yields and selective handpicking, serve as guarantors for our extraordinary wines and their individual and unique character. Our work flow in the wine cellar is focused on gentle treatment of the grapes and the young wines. We use small stainless steel tanks where the grapes of each different vineyard can be fermented separately. The fermentation is temperature-controlled and kept very slow and at low temperatures to retain the diversity of aromas and the vitality of the wines. In most vintage years we have all the varieties found on a good wine menu, ranging from a juicy, hearty table wine to a creamy, sweet dry berry selection. Read less

The nose boast a strong fruitiness of flavors like ripe peach and apricot. Fine petrol notes underline the character and the good aging potential.
