2020 Max Ferd. Richter Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese Mosel

SKU #1572187 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Stunning balance of white-peach, Amalfi-lemon and tropical-flower aromas with racy acidity and fine-grained mineral character that swallows up this wine’s generous natural sweetness. Very long finish with so much lime freshness that it effortlessly lifts the corners of your mouth. Super-clean finish. Inner quote mark (1/2022)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From vines about 100 years old from a parcel below the sundial, just down the Moselle, and aged in fuder, the 2020 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese is deep, intense and complex but also subtle on the refined and elegant, almost ethereal nose that intermingles perfectly ripe and healthy fruit aromas with notes of crushed stones. Lush and piquant on the palate with some fine tannins and very discreet new(er) oak notes, this is a vibrantly fresh and stimulatingly salty, well-structured WSU that is still far too young to show its true merits. Yet everything here—most of all its energy and incredible tension and salinity—indicates a great future. 7.5% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted from AP 1721 in November 2021.

K&L Notes

93 points Mosel Fine Wines: "The 2020er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese was made from fruit picked at 90° Oechsle on over 90-year-old vines and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar (80 g/l). It offers a beautiful nose made of pear, coconut, apricot blossom, aniseed herbs, lime, and smoky elements. The wine is beautifully juicy and animating on the palate and leaves a remarkably playful and mouthwatering feel in the fruity and mineral finish."(05/2021)
