Why We're Buying
Markus Molitor Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese is pure gold. The charming riesling is crisp and refreshing, finishing with a touch of light oak flavor. It's one of the reasons Weingut Markus Molitor earned the name "Herr 300 Punkte" (Mr. 300 Points), a tribute to its three Auslese rieslings that received three 100-point ratings from wine critic Robert Parker.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The golden-colored 2019 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Auslese *** (Golden Capsule) opens with an intense yet highly finessed and elegant bouquet of perfectly ripe, tropical fruits intermixed with very fine weathered slate aromas. This fascinating combination of richness and finesse is also mirrored on the palate, which is immediately lush and round, then intense and concentrated but always lifted and refined by this beautifully crystalline and grippy slate structure. This Auslese is still a raw diamond but will surely develop to a spellbinding character over the years. Another fabulous 2019 Auslese from Markus Molitor’s most loved vineyard. Tasted in May 2021."
