My note: “WOWZERS. Class in a glass!! In aromatic purity and dazzling dimension, this illustrates, once again, the pinnacle level of quality in Molitor’s Zeltinger Sonnenuhr wines….this is self evident Grand cru class and complexity. In the mouth, this is a bit richer in body (as its Auslese must weight would logically infer), yet it is weightlessly filigrée and precise, with heart swooning charm, complexity, and finesse. As good as it gets! Bravo!!” A little * awarded here.
“This delivers a stunning nose of smoke, vineyard peach, candied grapefruit, pear, cassis, yellow flowers, anise and dried spices. The wine is delicate on the palate, where a most gorgeously juicy side is beautifully wrapped into a touch whipped cream. The finish is simply to die for: airy, delicate and above all superbly refined. What a great dry Riesling in the making! 2021-2036” 95 MFW
“Another Molitor 2016 featuring heady florality, this is both musky and suggestively sweet on the nose, channeling peony, narcissus and lily. A creamy, expansive palate offers deep, undulating layering of apple and pear fruit, piquant, smoky nut oils and liquid floral perfume. This finishes with a sensational combination of sheer length and transparency to subtle complexity, offering persistent creaminess yet animating juiciness.” 94 David Schildknecht
