2018 Max Ferd. Richter Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese*** Mosel

SKU #1438199 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The first three-starred Auslese since 2005 (prior to that, it was 1993, 1983 and 1975), the 2018 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese *** was picked at about 145° Oechsle. This is incredibly clear, pure, fine and fresh on the lush, concentrated, herbal and grapefruit-scented nose. On the palate, this is a generously lush, refined and salty-piquant Auslese with a tight mineral structure and lingering salinity. This is highly refined and extremely stimulating. It already drinks all too well today, but Constantin recommends cellaring it for at least 10 years. Tasted in March 2019. (SR) 97+ Inner quote mark (6/2019)

94 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The three star Auslese from the Wehlener Sonnenuhr is absolutely stellar. This was made from a parcel of one hundred and twenty year-old vines and Constantin estimates that eighty percent of the bunches selected for this bottling were botrytized. The bouquet is gorgeous, offering up scents of white cherry, pineapple, honeycomb, citrus blossoms and a nice bass note of slate. On the palate the wine is precise, pure and fullish, with lovely creaminess on the attack, excellent focus and grip, bright acids and a long, complex and dancing finish that closes with a lovely dollop of minerality. Fine, fine juice. (Drink between 2024-2070) Inner quote mark (3/2019)
