Dr. F Weins-Prum 1988er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Riesling Spatlese

My favorite local internet wine store recently uncovered a mixed case of 1988 & 1989 German Riesling for me that very much takes me back to when I was first learning about great Riesling, with the added benefit of 20 years or so of age.

Orange color, bright as an early Spring sunrise.

Smell of orange and peach, trace of diesel exhaust.

Sweet peach, orange flavor, rich, well-balanced with acid. Trace of petillance on the tongue, hint of coconut in the finish.

Very good bottle, not the best I've had from this Einzellage, but I don't think I've ever had a bad Wehlener Sonnenuhr!
