2017 Markus Molitor Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese *** Goldkapsel Mosel

SKU #1458005 99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Riesling Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese *** (Golden Capsule) is subtle and discreet yet concentrated and deep on the delicate nose, with clear (white) peach, spicy lemon chutney and crystalline slate notes. Lush, piquant and silky, with very clear, elegant fruit and great finesse, this is a rich but lean and precise Wehlener Sonnenuhr whose acidity is terribly fine but defined and merciless as a laser beam. This is a gorgeous and already stimulating Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese of great class and style. Tasted at the domain in April 2019. (SR) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Almond paste, vanilla cream, pear preserves and glazed pineapple make for a seductive aromatic display and a wonderful balance of richness with juiciness and tang on a creamy, schmaltzy palate. Layers of nut extracts, fruit and inner-mouth floral perfume convey an almost bottomless sense of depth. Yet textural richness and enormous flavor concentration by no means preclude buoyancy and even a sense of airiness. A hint of crystallized ginger adds invigoration while an onrush of marine salinity sets the salivary glands palpitating on a vibrant, sensationally sustained finish. (DS) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

95 points, Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 49 18. The 2017er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese *** (Golden Capsule) offers a gorgeous nose of grapefruit, pineapple, pear, whipped cream and spices. The wine has the presence and creaminess of a BA on the beautifully suave palate and leaves a long and lingering feel of almond paste in the delicately ample finish."
