I had to go for it since there was some seeping at the cork. Ended up being great. Luscious, honeyed long finish.

This is quite sulfurous at first , though there is apple pie and citrus underneath. Medium sweet, the palate is exemplary , even considering the very hot 2003 vintage . Lots of cooked apple , citrus and mineral, almost pineapple at the end , long finish well balanced , really quite elegant actually, beautifully poised . This has life ahead of it , everything is in there to improve another 5 and last a further 10 years I suspect. An excellent wine.

Fine acidity for the vintage, some unsurprisingly potent sulfur that blew off with air. The wine waiting underneath was rich, ripe and showy but without sacrificing the hot slate impression of Wehlener Sonnenuhr. Just coming around, with decades ahead.
