Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2017
95+ Picked at 155° Oechsle and made from pure raisins, the 2015 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Beerenauslese is super clear, fine, fresh and piquant on the nose, as well as super concentrated and clear, with ripe apricot... 95+ Picked at 155° Oechsle and made from pure raisins, the 2015 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Beerenauslese is super clear, fine, fresh and piquant on the nose, as well as super concentrated and clear, with ripe apricot aromas but all in all still a bit too reductive to be fully fascinating. Sweet, refined and lush, this is a very elegant, beautifully clear and intense BA with precise acidity and a very well defined finish with lemon and some nice bitter grapefruit flavors. Great elegance, finesse and piquancy here. It has 6% alcohol, 202 grams of residual sugar and 11.5 grams of total acidity. - Stephan Reinhardt

Despite 200 grams of residual sugar facing off against 11.5 grams of acidity, this manages to avoid the edgy sweet-sour tension of several Richter Auslesen. Here is where all of the botrytis in their Wehlen vineyards... Despite 200 grams of residual sugar facing off against 11.5 grams of acidity, this manages to avoid the edgy sweet-sour tension of several Richter Auslesen. Here is where all of the botrytis in their Wehlen vineyards went, reported Constantin Richter. Hints of honey and yeasty white bread on the nose point to that botrytis, while scents of apple jelly and vanilla anticipate the luscious amalgam that follows on the palate. White peach syrup and vanilla cream add richness, and an influx of fresh lime contributes juiciness and animation while preserving a remarkable sense of harmony. The superbly sustained finish penetrates and innervates. -David Schildknecht
