Strongly blackcurrant, it soars on the nose with bright cherry florals, light brown spices, unrivalled power and intensity kept in check with electric acidity and crushed slate. WOW! classic Wehlener concentration. My wine of the tasting. Tremendous potential. Ian Cook, FWC.
“Ripe pear, mirabelle and lychee are garlanded with heliotrope and lily. The delicate but glossy palate introduces overripe Persian melon to accompany the already effusive fruit and decadent liquid perfume promised on the nose. Seed piquancy and a kiss of wet stone lend welcome counterpoint to the lusciously lingering finish.” 94 points. David Schildknecht, Vinous.
“For a bottling that usually requires years to show its colors, this surprisingly open, lavishly perfumed Spätlese wafts of pristine white peach and blossom. It's delightfully honeyed yet invigorating, balancing layers of apricot and yellow cherry flavors against crushed slate and dazzling acidity. While tempting in youth, it should improve through 2035.” 94 points, Wine Enthusiast.
