NEW RELEASE FROM THE GREAT 2017 VINTAGE!...ONE SHIPMENT ONLY!!

"A ton of floral and peachy charm on the nose. In spite of the high acidity of the vintage, this has a playful personality. Another stunning wine from this producer. A long lemon, gooseberry and mineral finish. Drink or hold." (JS)

"The 2017er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Sp├Ątlese exhibits a most beautiful nose of orange, apricot flower, ripe yellow peach, minty herbs and pear. The wine is gorgeously juicy and light on the palate, yet gradually shows more depth and intensity which is nicely wrapped into a creamy and delicate structure. The finish is long and delicately smooth. We would not be surprised if this stunning Sp├Ątlese would eventually warrant a higher rating at maturity, once the refined and elegant side will have fully come through. 2027-2047" (FWR)
