WTN: 2004 Markus Molitor Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese

Ap#18 for those of you scoring at home. That leaves this wine just two AP numbers short of tying Hank Aaron's record...of course most recent vintages are on those darned global warming steroids...

My first experience with Molitor's wines. A little bit leesy/sulphurous on the nose, but not too bad. Underneath the brimstone lies apple, vanilla cream and lemon curd. On the palate this is indeed creamy in texture, but still lively and refreshing, focusing on vanilla and lemon curd with the apple only appearing on the finish. Excellent balance for aging, and an overall outstainding wine. I will be seeking out more of this producer in the future.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
