Other Reviews....
The 2021 Wehlener Sonnenuhr GG Alte Reben shows an intense, elegant and coolish bouquet of ripe, bright fruits and flint stones. Lush and round on the palate, this is a supple, salivating, saline and juicy WSU with an intense and substantial finish. This is gorgeous and kind of hedonistic yet with the clear and defined 2021 acidity. Excellent. 12.5% alcohol. Tasted as a sample at the domaine in July 2022. To be bottled in October. Drink 2023 - 2050.

Stephan Reinhardt - Wine Advocate (Aug 26, 2022)

An exquisitely creamy sense of lemon pervades the nose of the 2021 Riesling Wehlener Sonnenuhr Grosses Gewächs Alte Reben, almost as of lemon posset. With more air, notions of tangerine peel appear with much aromatic appeal. The palate reinforces all this wonderful zestiness shimmering with ripe Amalfi lemon and tangerine. This is marked by a delightful serenity, great concentration and an intense saltiness that, along with the zestiness, makes the palate tingle. Glorious, dry, statuesque. (Dry). Drink 2023-2050.

Cool and herbal, but well-balanced and elegant this 2021 riesling GG has an appealing silkiness in spite of the lemony acidity. The positive tannins build at the long, structured finish. Although this site has a reputation for wines that show really well early in their life this really needs some time. Drinkable now, but best from 2023.
