2019 Markus Molitor Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese *** (Golden Capsule)

$84.99
2019 Markus Molitor Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese *** (Golden Capsule)
The 2019s from Molitor are fantastic and another amazingly successful vintage for this crucial figure in the Mosel. Wehlener Sonnenuhr is one of the prized sites in the area and is named after an Ancient stone sundial built in the vineyard that is still visible today. The slope has a South-Southwest exposure with weathered, stony, grey Devonian soils. The wines here are elegant with excellent ripeness of fruit, expressive aromatics, and a racy acidity with a silky mouthfeel and powerful minerality. This is one of the pinnacles of sweeter wine but is very balanced and not thick and cloying, being at the Auslese level. This is about as good as Molitor gets, and we have an exceptional price on this bottle. This is not a wine to miss for fans of Auslese and incredibly made Riesling.

Wine Advocate (Stephan Reinhardt) 99 points! "The 2019 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese *** (Golden Capsule) opens with an immediately attractive bouquet, with perfectly ripe peach aromas intermingled with very fine crunchy and flinty slate notes. Lush and intense yet weightless, with an enormously salty, finessed and elegant but also generously fruity palate lifted by crystalline and mouth-salivating acidity, this is a filigreed, transparent and immaculate Auslese of mind-blowing finesse and elegance and the sexiest expression of complexity. Tasted in May 2021."
