Bernkasteler Bad­stube Auslese

A mouth-wa­ter­ing white from a lesser ap­pel­la­tion that de­liv­ers ex­cel­lent qual­ity, with in­tense but sub­tle green melon and lemon char­ac­ter. Full and lightly sweet with bright acid­ity. Drink now.

The won­der­ful pu­rity and bal­ance of this wine gives it a fresh­ness and dry­ness, with gun­metal, lemon, tan­ger­ine and lime char­ac­ter. A full body yet ag­ile. Drink now.

A beau­ti­ful wine with fab­u­lous har­mony and in­ten­sity. Aro­mas and flavours of cit­rus, man­goes, flint and gun­metal. A medium body, with bright and in­tense acid­ity. Drink now.

94 points Wehlener Son­nenuhr Auslese Gold­kapsel

Su­perb depth and in­ten­sity. Love the aro­mas of dried apri­cot and lemon with min­er­als and hints of dry ice. Full body. Fab­u­lous fruit yet fresh and ag­ile. Medium sweet. Drink or hold. Bet­ter to de­cant if you drink it young.
