Wow, this is indeed another register of complexity and character, as this has the hallmark Wehlener Sonnenuhr cool, airy, white floral, and slightly smoky mineral reductiveness on the aromas, big time. In the mouth, it is positively filigree lacy, and an absolutely stunningly beautiful/charming expression of Wehlener Sonnenuhr blue slate finesse. The folks at Mosel Fine Wine and I are definitely on the same page with this one, as it is genuinely superb…..a little * awarded here.
“The 2021er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett Feinherb was made from fruit on 60-year-old vines harvested at 76° Oechsle and was fermented down to off-dry levels of residual sugar (below 30 g/l). The nose proves superbly refined and complex as elegant and refreshing notes of yellow peach, tangerine, almond cream, and orange blossom interplay with mint, smoke, and herbs. The wine is superbly airy and elegant on the velvety and finely creamy palate. The finish is all about lightness and finesse with good ripe acidity in the background. This old-styled and classic drinking Kabinett is really superb. 2024-2041” 93 Mosel Fine Wines
