The 2016 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese offers clear, fresh and precise tropical fruit on the nose with aromas of nectarines and white peaches but also smoky notes from crushed rocks. Incredibly lush and endlessly juicy, with grippy reduction and lingering salinity, this is a highly stimulating and mouthwatering Spätlese in the old style: not too sweet but with a good amount of sulfur. Tasted February 2018.

Luxurious guava, grapefruit and red berry aromas perfum this intensely fruity, sun-kissed spätlese. It's wispy and spry on the palate but penetrating acidity guides a long brambly finish. Approachable already but structured enough to stay pristine well through 2025.

Shows a good stretch from start to finish, with high acidity balanced by ripe apple and Key lime pie flavors. Delicate, yet expressive and vibrant, with a lasting, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2029. 300 cases imported.
