Golden yellow. Heady aromas of mango and passion fruit are tweaked by a hint of smoky botrytis. Rich and full-bodied, with a creamy texture to the tropical fruit flavors but discreet acidity providing support. Crisp, lively and finely balanced, this auslese finishes with a mouthwatering succulence.

The Meulenhof 2009 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese displays lovely purity of apple and vanilla, mint and melon liqueur, both in the nose (no disruptive yeastiness here) and on a polished palate whose faintly creamy and oily notes perfectly reinforce the wine's flavor personality. Thanks to its low alcohol, this projects a delicacy to compliment its opulence of texture and near over-ripeness. Unlike the case of Justen's two Erdener Treppchen Auslesen, no botrytis fruit was further selected out from this. Yet the expression of botrytis here is not in the least coarse, fungal, or bitter, but rather exceptionally fine. I would expect 15-20 years of seductive satisfaction here, and quite possibly more nuance. Certainly that the wine's sheer sense of sweetness will eventually diminish will - to this taster, at least, be welcome.

Full-throttle, with a mineral- and rose-infused aroma, followed by peach cobbler, apricot, lemon curd and spice flavors. This has bright acidity, with clove and Indian spice notes. Intensely juicy and fresh on the finish, with a beautiful silky texture. Best from 2015 through 2035.
