93 points "A delicious auslese, revealing a fleeting range of lime, slate and spice flavors allied to a gossamer texture. Built on a light-weight frame, this layers itself seamlessly to a lime-tinged aftertaste. Drink now through 2030. 1,000 cases made." Best 2008-2030

94 points "The 2006 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Gold Capsule offers gardenia, orange blossom, apple jelly, and honey in the nose. Malt and peach join the floral and apple essences on the palate, which alternates silken and buttery textural expressions. Acidity is not at all obvious here, but its presence is felt in balanced sweetness and in finishing penetration and energy. Malt, butter cream and flowers linger in the empty glass. If this were sold solely as perfume it would already justify its price. But it would really be a shame to open a bottle for at least 15 years, and it could be held for at least 40. (There were two bottlings of this wine – one this year – of which I tasted the first, A.P. #17 07.) "
