9%Abv "The 2018 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Sp?tlese is coolish, precise and flinty on the elegant and complex yet always bright and seductive nose that offers lush and precise white stone fruit aromas. Intense and refined on the palate, this is a dense, highly elegant, tightly structured and sustainable Sp?tlese with a long and stimulatingly salty finish. A fabulous and serious WSU Sp?tlese. Tasted at the domain in September 2020." ? 95 Points, Stephan Reinhardt,

"Ripe pear, mirabelle and lychee are garlanded with heliotrope and lily. The delicate but glossy palate introduces overripe Persian melon to accompany the already effusive fruit and decadent liquid perfume promised on the nose. Seed piquancy and a kiss of wet stone lend welcome counterpoint to the lusciously lingering finish." ? 94 Points, David Schildknecht, Vinous

"For a bottling that usually requires years to show its colors, this surprisingly open, lavishly perfumed Sp?tlese wafts of pristine white peach and blossom. It's delightfully honeyed yet invigorating, balancing layers of apricot and yellow cherry flavors against crushed slate and dazzling acidity. While tempting in youth, it should improve through 2035." ? 94 Points, Wine Enthusiast

"A deep and complex Sp?tlese with a ton of blossom aromas, but also great white fruit and a touch of yellow peach and fresh pineapple. Very long, bright and delicate on the medium-bodied palate. Drink or hold." ? 96 Points, James Suckling
