Kerpen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese *** 2006

Sweet Wine from Germany
Review Date : 28-Mar-2014
Bright, light golden yellow colour. This has a fully interwoven and layered bouquet with a broad spectrum of citrus fruit aromas, of ripe limes, mandarins and oranges melded with wild honey and marmalade, musk, caramel, toffee and toasted nuts. This is well botrytised with decadent fruit along with some bottle development complexity. Very rich and luscious on palate and nearly over the top, this has bold and brazen flavours of ripe orange fruit infused with musk, marmalade, honey, cream and caramel. The palate has great presence and mouthfilling, coating unctuousness, forming a decadent and dense core. Yet the thread of acidity is bright and penetrating, offering a degree of cut and drive. This has layer of complexity and opulence in an up-front style, suggesting signs of development. A meditation wine, to enjoy over the next 10-15 years. 8.5% alc., 189 g/L RS. (375ml) 19.0-/20 Mar 2014 RRP $66.00
