Editorial Reviews for Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel Wehlener Sonnenuhr
Big petrol and rubber nose with smoky notes. Rich and honied with a touch of botrytis and an almost syrupy character that keeps the wine simple though with just enough acidity to keep it drinkable. Too young for this one. Wait 3 years.
Apple and vanilla with a crisp finish.
Baked apple with a hint of peach and apricot on the nose. Well balanced with decent acidity. Had it with a Ceasar salad and it actually paired pretty well. I ordered another bottle for the wine cellar.
highly aromatic, cantaloupe, apricots with a viscous palate of rich fruit flavors combined with little nuances of slate
Brilliant minerality on the nose, almost a bit of sea air. Crisp acidity perfectly balanced with the residual sugar. Silky smooth on the palette with that minerality, floral notes, and a touch of apricot. Light and refreshing.
Pure and delicate, yet strong mineral and florals on the nose. Showing nice apple and peach notes and good mineral mixed in. Delicious and well balanced. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 4/10/10
External Reviews for Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel Wehlener Sonnenuhr
A tightly coiled seam of mineral slatey-ness and tangy grip keeps the stunning package of concentrated stone fruits, pastilles, smoke, pungent citrus and white florals, all tightly woven and ravishingly refreshing. It's an Auslese for the ages, so much so that you could fill a room with this wine's ambition.
Subtle floral bouquet with peach skin and acacia blossom. Bright, slightly tart apple with a refreshing, persistent acidity. This invigorating wine has an appealing finish.
Excellent structure, ripe aromas and flavors of stone fruits (like peach), a fine minerality, great depth and length. Unique harmony, finesse and expression after aging. Fine, yet racy with elegance and complexity. Beautiful balance between fine minerality, crisp acidity, expressive fruit aromas and flavors.
Crunchy yet nicely fleshed out, with good cut to the citrus and mineral notes that accent the apple and grapefruit flavors. Features firm acidity and a finish that echoes with ripe melon hints. Drink now through 2018.
A racy style, with flinty notes to the fresh-cut apple and crunchy peach flavors, matched to a slightly viscous salinity. Lemon zest lingers on the well-structured finish, revealing hints of passion fruit. Drink now through 2020.
Spring blossoms and lemon zest lend a fresh exuberance to this effortlessly elegant kabinett. Just a shade off dry, it’s juicy with tangerine, honeydew and yellow peach flavors, but vibrant, with bright streaks of Meyer-lemon acidity.
