Kerpen Riesling Auslese Wehlener Sonnenuhr 2002

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Rich and pure, with creamy apricot, lime and slate. Needs some time to reveal all its nuances, but the firm structure and long finish show its potential.

On the soft, lush side, with lemon pie, apricot and stone notes mingling with the smooth texture. This seems open and easy, yet it's deceptively long on the finish. Drink now through 2022.

A touch of tannin holds this wineandrsquo;s ripe, golden raisin flavors fast to the tongue. Heavy and muscled, it will show its opulence best next to rich dishes.

You know this: itandrsquo;s the little bird in the rowboat. This 2002 is a big salty critter, a slightly-too-friendly dog whom you love but who jumps on you with big wet paws. Yet you just adore him.

Dark notes of Bartlett pear, guava and green apple take some time to emerge, feeling wound-up in their acidic structure right now. Like many wines from the Sonnenuhr in this vintage, the expression of slate is remarkably intense and pure.
