Mosel Fine Wines

The Estate produced two Eiswein from the Wehlener Sonnenuhr in 1998, of which the “bigger” one was sold via the Auction in 2000. The “smaller” Eiswein was harvested at well over 130° Oechsle and only released by the Estate in 2016. It offers a hugely complex, multi-layered and mature nose of camphor, quince, baked pineapple, mango, starfruit and beeswax with a touch of licorice. This gives way to a gorgeous creamy feel, with complex scents of fruits, nut and herbs on the palate and a stunning feel of freshness. This retains great finesse and complexity despite the intrinsic ripeness and understated baroque side of the wine. This will particularly please lovers of mature BA-Eiswein styled Riesling. What a beauty! Now-2028
