95 points Mosel Fine Wines
"The 2020er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Trocken Uralte Reben GG is a bone-dry wine (with 3 g/l of residual sugar) made from fruit picked on un- grafted vines planted in 1890. It proves rather backward at first and really needs a few moments to reveal some subtle but still faint scents of white peach, herbs, fine spices, and floral elements. The wine is hugely focused but beautifully deep on the palate. A touch of zest frames the flavors at the moment and enhances the tart side in the nicely firm and focused finish. The aftertaste is simply a thing of beauty as layer upon layer of fine fruity flavors are enhanced by minerals, spices, and herbs. This hugely impressive dry Riesling now only needs a few years of bottle aging to reveal its splendor. What a great success! 2025-2040."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Uralte Reben is the German term for very old vines. This wine is made from our oldest vines in the Wehlener Sonnenuhr planted between 1890 and 1900. Fine peach and apricot aromatics, floral notes and crisp slate piquancy. A very elegant wine with a long and lasting finish, backed by precise slate minerality.
