More conventional loveliness

I enjoyed that Madeira so much I wanted something else nice to drink. Luckily, I’ve got plenty of nice things available.

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese 1997, Dr Loosen

This is as fruity as I remember it being when I purchased it on release. It bursts with fresh, citric fruit and a slate-y minerality. Quite lovely on the nose because of this. The palate is fine, elegant and balanced. Lots of fruit, plenty of sweetness and enough acidity. The acidity seems slightly fizzy, but I don’t think there is any residual CO2 in this. The length is pretty good, too. It is a beautiful little Auslese, I haven’t had better in… oh… a period of time.
