The 2017 Wehlener Sonnenuhr SpÃ¤tlese is impressively deep, dense and expressive on the nose that is more mineral rather than fruity. On the palate, this is a lush, tensioned, very precise, elegant, sharply defined and complex Riesling. It’s not as exuberant as the Sonnenuhr can be, but it represents more of the gray/blue slate soil. The finish is really lush, perfectly concentrated and salty. This is a great PrÃ¼m icon SpÃ¤tlese. Tasted in March 2019.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2050
