2019 Max Ferd. Richter Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett Mosel (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1498060 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From 80-year-old vines predominantly from the original Sonnenuhr plot below the sundial, the 2019 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett opens with still reductive, sulfuric yet also beautifully floral, bright and elegant fruit aromas that indicate remarkable delicacy. Round and finessed on the elegant and refined palate, this is a very intense, sweet and persistently salty-mineral WSU with great finesse and length. Persistently salty. (SR) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

Outer quote mark The Richter family has some of the very oldest vines in the Wehlener Sonnenuhr, as their parcel right under the sundial were planted back in the nineteenth century, and some of these ancient vines were used for this superb Kabinett in 2019. This is the highest acid Kabinett in the cellars this year, carrying ten grams per liter and was balanced with forty-seven grams per liter of residual sugar. The bouquet is young, complex and vibrant, offering up a vivid blend of apple, pear, vanilla bean, a superb base of slate, bee pollen and a topnote of lime zest. On the palate the wine is medium-full, snappy and laser-like in its focus, with great intensity of flavor and backend lift, fine slate undertow and a very long, pure, complex and electric finish. Superb juice. Inner quote mark (9/2020)

K&L Notes

94 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 10 20. The 2019er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett was made from fruit picked at 84° Oechsle in the area around the sundial and in the upper part of the vineyard, and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (47 g/l). It offers a superb nose made of white peach, freshly cut apple, flowers, and smoky elements. The wine is incredibly subtle and playful on the palate, and leaves a superb feel of white flowers, pear, and apricot blossom in the light-footed and finely sizzled finish. A touch of beautifully integrated sweetness just underlines the greatness of this wine in the finish. This is text-book stuff!" (05/2020)
