The aromatics here have opened up to a wow level of depth and complexity, the white florals now accompanied by the stone fruit and minerality found in the mouth earlier. Its sense of mineral power is also stepped up big time, giving the wine an even longer and more mouth watering sensibility. Its coiled and pure nature give me every confidence that this wine will evolve gloriously in classic Wehelener Sonnenuhr style…..” Another little * awarded here.
