The wines of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr possess an excellent structure, show beautiful, ripe aromas and flavours (typically stone fruits, like peach), a fine minerality and great depth and length. Especially after having been aged for some years, their harmony, finesse and expression is unique. This Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese is a very classical Mosel Riesling Spätlese with a beautiful balance between a pronounced minerality, a vibrant acidity and expressive fruit aromas and flavours.

95pts Wine Enthusiast– 2017 vintage
FOR THE 2017 VINTAGE – 95 POINTS
The 2017 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese 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 Prüm icon Spätlese. Tasted in March 2019
95pts Wine Advocate– 2018 vintage
The 2018 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese is coolish, precise and flinty on the elegant and complex yet always bright and seductive nose that offers lush and precise white stone fruit aromas.
Intense and refined on the palate, this is a dense, highly elegant, tightly structured and sustainable Spatlese with a long and stimulatingly salty finish. A fabulous and serious WSU Spatlese. Tasted at the domain 2020.
