Winner of the Berlin Kabinett Cup in 2015 for the best Kabinett of the vintage, this was long gone by the time I offered the 2015s. This year, I am sure to an early bird, so we will not miss out….! From 80-90 year old vines in their massive 1.5 hectare block that sits just below the actual sundial. “Absolutely classic aromatics of more reserved white florals/minerality/yellow fruits, then super pure and seamless yellow fruits are given dancing filigree animation by its mineral underpinnings. Classic!” A little * awarded here. Get some.
This year, this bottling was chosen as the best Kabinett of the Vintage in the Gault Millau…!
“The 2017er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett was harvested early at 82° Oechsle. It offers a gorgeous nose of grapefruit, apricot, under-ripe pineapple, citronella, yuzu, ginger cream and smoke. The wine is quite rich at first on the palate, which is driven by ripe yellow fruits. Yet, a most animating, racy and energetic acidity kicks in and makes for a refined and focused finish. This is a gorgeous fruity-styled in the making! 2025-2037″ 93 Mosel Fine Wines”
