The 1980s are above all renowned for the 1983, 1988 and 1989 vintages. However, as so often with Riesling, lesser vintages can give birth to stunningly good wines.

And this is no less true for what Bert Selbach at the Dr. F. Weins-Prüm Estate managed to produce in the more challenging 1985 vintage. This is one of the all-time great vintages at this Estate, even at Spätlese level, as shown by our Mosel of the Month.

You can learn more about this decade and the wines which are delicious to drink now by reading the detailed review published in the Issue No 15 (April 2011).

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese

11 86


Tasted at the 100th birthday dinner of the Grosser Ring, this is beautifully balanced and offers the most graceful notes of fresh fruits with a refined touch of honey and dried wood. The wine is just a jewel and a great treat. More please! Now-2020
