2018 Gessinger Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese - 92 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 92 pts

 "Ripe honeydew and white peach flavors penetrate this rich, intensely concentrated Spätlese. It's sumptuously sweet and weighty on the palate yet balanced by zippy lime acidity and a lingering spray of crushed stones. Just reaching peak now, it should drink well for a decade to come. - ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA"

2021 Gessinger Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese Josefsberg - 94 PTS - Mosel Fine Wines

mosel fine wines logo"The 2021er Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese Josefsberg Alte Reben was made from fruit at 94° Oechsle and was fermented to sweet levels of residual sugar (72 g/l). It offers a captivating and complex nose made of fresh scents of lemon, grapefruit, yellow peach, cherry, fine spices, floral elements, thyme, and flint stone. The wine is beautifully playful on the palate, where juicy and delicate yellow fruits interplay with lively and energetically zesty elements. The finish is gorgeously refreshing and chiseled. The intensity and energy of the after-taste are simply impressive. The wine proves already more fruity-styled than really sweet. This is a great playful, light-weighted, and layered Spätlese. 2029-2036+"
