Markus Molitor Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese Riesling 2005

The other day brought the consumption of yet another German Riesling due to my propensity to eat asian food. Coming from a small but respected producer in Mosel, the wine's nose was very burnt and petrolly, with a touch of limey minerality. In a word, a standard nose with a bit more concentration than usual.

The palate was lime and rich apple (perhaps something like Royal Gala), but brought little else to the table. Well made, concentrated, but nothing super exciting, despite the vineyard and the vintage.

Very Good+
$42 at Private Liquor Stores
