2017 Schloss Lieser Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett Mosel

SKU #1425307 94 points John Gilman

 I have loved the examples of Wehlener Sonnenuhr that I have tasted from Schloss Lieser since Thomas Haag acquired a small slice in this great terroir, but this 2017 Kabinett may be the most pure and classic expression of this vineyard I have yet tasted from the estate. This magical Kabinett is utterly pure and refined, offering up a complex bouquet of apple, pear, vanilla bean, a touch of petrol, wild yeasts, a beautiful base of grey slate and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, medium-full, pure and precise, with lovely filigree, bright, zesty acids and outstanding focus and grip on the very long, dancing and complex finish. A brilliant example. (Drink between 2022-2050) 94+  (5/2018)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2017 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett is flinty and stony on the openhearted but serious and not overly fruity nose that reveals a fine mineral base. Lush and generous but fine and elegant on the mouth-filling palate, this is a well-structured, salty-mineral, piquant and complex Wehlener Sonnenuhr from younger vines. The finish is long and complex. This is an excellent sweet Kabinett with mouth-filling, lush fruit as well as finesse and elegant salinity. Tasted in March 2019. (SR)  (6/2019)

K&L Notes

90 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 09 18. The 2017er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett starts by revealing reductive notes of toffee and smoke. These only slowly give way to a nose driven by ripe fruits including apricot, quince and candied pineapple. The wine develops the presence and depth of a Spätlese on the palate, where ripe fruits and a creamy texture of almond and coconut underpin the sweetness at this early stage. The finish of this delicately exotic expression of a Spätlese is smooth and round but develops some airiness in the after-taste. 2025-2037."
