Weins-Prum Riesling Spatlese Wehlener Sonnenuhr 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2015 Wehlener Sonnenuhr is the richest Spätlese in the range, but also the most reserved at this point. That the wine shows a Kabinett-like texture while coming in at 90g/L residual sugar and 7.5% alc./vol. is a testament to the deft touch that Bert Selbach brings to his wines. Elegance and precision are paramount. This is a youthful wine in which slate and petrol dominate, but the nose eventually gives up aromas of ginger snap cookies, candied white flowers, and peach blossom. As mentioned above, the palate is centered around bright, balanced acid and extract with the mineral flavors again at the fore. Elements of red currant, pineapple, and orange zest round out the nascently complex profile. Drink 2018-2030.
