2001 Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese (375ml)

SKU #1142521 94 points Wine Spectator

 Lightweight and focused, with peach, lime and mineral flavors on an open, airy texture. Good underlying acidity drives the long finish. Not a blockbuster, but very pure. Best from 2004 through 2014.  (3/2003)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Apples, pears, and raspberries burst from the glass of the 2001 Riesling Auslese Wehlener Sonnenuhr. Light to medium-bodied and velvety-textured, this is a thick Riesling packed with red berries. Its plush character leads to a long, expressive finish studded with orange peels, cherries, and tangy limes. Projected maturity: 2006-2017.  (12/2002)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

 This lean, racy auslese has plenty of sweetness and ripe apple and pear fruit, but those elements play a secondary role to the intense mineral notes. Bright acidity gives great life and verve to this wine, which should age beautifully.  (3/2003)

 Magnum. Deep honeyed nose. Rich and waxy nose. The sweetness was much more pronounced than in the J J Prum 1996 served alongside. Very satisfying for the moment. Charming and refreshing. (18/20 points)  (1/2013)
