Tasting Notes

A jump up in both sweetness and concentration, Molitor’s superb late harvest Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Spätlese comes from his most famous vineyard. Less than 20 hectares, the Zeltinger Sonnenuhr comprises of mostly ungrafted vines on narrow terraces. The yields are low but superb quality, consistently showing “an incomparably elegant ripeness relative to the vintage”, as Markus himself explains. Of the 2016 release, the Wine Advocate writes: “Lush, round and elegant on the palate, this is a very delicate and harmonious Spätlese from Molitor's most important grand cru. Its finish is salty-piquant, very precise and tickling, showing stimulating grip and mineral tension.”
