The famous “sundial” vineyard, in the village of Wehlen, produces the quintessential Mosel Riesling: delicate and refined, with a racy texture and endless charm. 

    This precipitously steep, rocky vineyard consistently yields some of the most elegant and sophisticated white wines in the world. Auslese [OWS-lay-zuh] means “selected from the harvest,” and is a luscious sweet wine made from very ripe clusters that are about 50 percent affected by botrytis. The resulting wine is dense, intensely flavored and rich on the palate, but retains the elegant structure that is characteristic of this great site.

#62 TOP 100 CELLAR SELECTIONS 2020

While initially quite mineral, a bit of aeration introduces stunning, sun-drenched pineapple, mango and tangerine aromas here. More tropical and honeyed than the producer's other 2017 auslesen, it penetrates deeply on the palate, augmented by zippy streaks of acidity and a brisk cut of minerality. The finish is endless. Delicious already but it is structured enough to improve through 2040. ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA
