This September, we lighlight, among others, a stunning Spätlese to wet the appetite for the auction and which epitomizes the greatness of the style and Estate.

In advance of the annual auctions to be held in Bernkastel and Trier, we have chosen to also highlight a stunning auction wine, which we had the chance to re-taste recently. It underlines nicely the potential quality achieved by these rare and expensive bottles.

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese (Auction)
This has evolved beautifully and is now a stunner of a wine! There is still some stink on the nose at first but this disappears quite rapidly. It offers layers upon layers of with sappy white peaches, flowers and minerals on the nose. The integration of flavors is simply breathtaking and leaves one speechless. The sense of perfection continues on the palate with excellent sappy acidity and great clean and pure creaminess (without being overpowering) on the finish. It is still very young and the dry extract on the palate is just incredible: this is punchy and impressive. This is as good a Spätlese can be. Now-2032+
