97 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "The 2017 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese is intense and concentrated on the nose, with raisin, grapefruit and even vegetable aromas at the moment. This is highly attractive and noble on both the nose and palate. The wine is lush and dense on the palate but highly elegant, crystalline and fine, revealing a highly stimulating, salty-piquant and intensely aromatic and complex finish. This is an outstanding wine, and it's highly digestible. Tasted in March 2019. Drink: 2020-2060. (Jun 2019)"

97 points Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com): "Such supreme concentration and completeness with a flinty nose that also carries spicy elements and a swathe of white pepper, white peaches and mangoes that follow through to the palate with a seamless build of super fine and elegant fleshy texture and a succulently focused, long and super juicy ride to the long, fresh and seemingly dry, mineral finish. Drink over the next decade or more. (12/16/19)"

95 points and 'Editors' Choice,' Wine Enthusiast: "[$76 list] Whiffs of smoke and crushed earth blow off quickly with aeration to reveal succulent white-peach, yellow-cherry and grapefruit tones. It's unabashedly fresh and forward in fruit, yet anchored by a core of stony mineral tones and zippy light-saber acidity. It's a hedonistic yet impeccably balanced wine that drinks well already but will improve well through 2035, and likely beyond. Alcohol 7.5%. (Apr 2019)"
