“The 2018er Wolfer Sonnenlay Riesling Spätlese was harvested at 95° Oechsle on mostly un-grafted vines trained on single pole and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar. The wine offers a reduced nose of pear, citrusy fruits, almond and smoky slate. It develops the fruity presence of an Auslese on the palate but retains great playfulness in the finish thanks to its comparatively high acidity”

Mosel Fine Wines (David Rayer & Jean Fisch): “The 2018er Wolfer Sonnenlay Riesling Spätlese was harvested at 95° Oechsle on mostly un-grafted vines trained on single pole and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar. The wine offers a reduced nose of pear, citrusy fruits, almond and smoky slate. It develops the fruity presence of an Auslese on the palate but retains great playfulness in the finish thanks to its comparatively high acidity (9.5 g/l). The after-taste is playful and elegant. 2028-2048” 93/100 pts

John Gilman (View from the Cellar): “It was lovely to see a Spätlese produced from the Sonnenlay vineyard this year and this is another really refined example of the vintage. The bouquet is pure and already very expressive, offering up scents of golden delicious apples, white cherries, a very complex base of slate, spring flowers and an esthery topnote of bee pollen. On the palate the wine is medium-full, crisp and pure, with classic tension between the juicy fruit, zesty acids and salty slate mineral drive. The finish is long, complex and very classy and this wine is going to be hard to resist from the moment it is released! Alexandra was not sure of the exact numbers for the Sonnenlay Spätlese, but estimated it is around sixty-five grams of sugar and eight grams of acidity. Joyous juice. 2019-2050.” 92+/100 pts
