Other Reviews....
The 2016 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese (Gold Capsule) is clear, fine and subtle yet concentrated, with vegetal and ripe fruit aromas. Rich, round and piquant, this is an intense and densely woven Auslese (AP 14 17) with a long, tensioned and refreshing mineral finish that lifts the sweet fruit. Gorgeous but made for another decade.

Stephan Reinhardt - Wine Advocate #236 (Apr 2018)

Scents and luscious, glossy palate presence of overripe apple and peach gain welcome counterpoint from the piquancy of seed and pit, while a greenhouse-like diversity of flowering and leafing things conveys intriguing perfume. A musky, peony-like note emerges midpalate. Liqueur-like intensity of fruit and a touch of caramel are backed, as in this year’s Bernkasteler Auslese Goldkapsel, by an unusually prominent sense of sheer sweetness, but without the fresh fruit juiciness that clung to that corresponding Bernkasteler’s finish.

David Schildknecht - Vinous

Lush and thick in texture, combining power and grace, with a firm backbone of acidity and mineral details. Stunning on the palate, featuring different nuances that keep emerging with each sip. Slate, apricot jam, flan, honeysuckle and kumquat fruit notes are the most prominent, leading to a long, mineral-laced finish. Drink now through 2040.

Aleks Zecevic - Wine Spectator

Super elegant and filigree with a delicacy that you don't find in many other high-end white wines regardless of grape variety and region of origin. A very long and clean finish. Drink or hold.
