Tasting Note                         

92   2010  Max Richter  Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese Riesling    11/20/15  ($30)

   8.5% alc
Color: Deep golden pineapple. (3.5) Bouquet: Minerals and tangy pear combine with flowery botrytus. Intense, but elegant. (3.0) Body: Solid middleweight with concentrated fruit and excellent minerality/acidity. Semi-sweet with a rich mouthfeel that coats beautifully. (3.0) Flavor: Dried apricots and pears with litchi nut and green mango. Tart minerality. Pretty and very delicious. (3.5) Finish: Parallels flavor with tart apricot lingering, but not as pretty or intense as the flavor. (3.0)
Overall: Delicious Riesling, being sweet, but not at all cloying. Excellent minerality and acidity combine with apricot and litchi nut fruit. Drink now and in the next 10 years. (16)
