Markus Molitor Riesling Spätlese Zeltinger Sonnenuhr 2004

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Molitor’s 2004 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese A.P. #22 was his most promising wine I tasted. A complex aroma mingles baked apple, vanilla, nut oils, musk, honey, and heady florality. An initially compact, then expansive and satisfyingly intense mouthful of baked apple, pineapple, lemon, vanilla, flowers, and herbs offers a lot to enjoy. There is a glossy, schmaltzy texture along with considerable overt sweetness and an ample dose of acidity. The finish is luscious, though quite sweet, tinged with tart fruit skin, baking spices, and herbal accents.

A touch funky in aroma, but what a delicious array of mango, passion fruit, Key lime pie and mineral flavors. Granny Smith apple cleanses on the finish. It’s all there, but needs some time to come together. Best from 2008 through 2020.
