97 points Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com): "There's a truly staggering interplay of mineral freshness and super fine, white peach, mangosteen and fresh pineapple in this dangerously vibrant Auslese, which lifts you out of your chair. Enormous aging potential, but so seductive now. Drink or hold. (11/23/20)"

95+ points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "The 2018 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese is very precise and intense on the concentrated and fleshy, deep and firmly structured, mineral and herbal nose. Round and generous on the palate, this is a sweet, piquant and salty, very intense and juicy Auslese that needs 10-15 years to get rid of its baby fat. Very promising. Tasted at the domain in September 2020. Drink: 2025-2060. (Oct 2020)"

93 points David Schildknecht (Vinous): "[$77 list] Scents of quince and apple jelly are accompanied by a surprisingly greenhouse-like evocation of diverse flowers and foliage. I say “surprisingly” because many of the Prüm 2018s deliver an especially heady, sweet, and often even decadent sort of floral perfume. Honeydew and Persian melons supply extremely ripe yet freshly juicy fruit that, when combined with the confitured quince and apple, make for an exceedingly luscious midpalate impression, reinforced by textural gloss and prominent but not excessive sweetness. The finish lingers impressively, reprising a welcome inner-mouth hint of flower shop. Look for this to deliver much more in future and to enjoy at least the typical ageworthiness of a Prüm Wehlener Auslese, if not more. Drink: 2022-2050. (Aug 2020)"

93 points Mosel Fine Wines: "The 2018er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese offers a nose of honeyed melon, lemongrass, apricot blossom, almond cream, and herbs. The wine is beautifully complex and subtle on the overall slightly round and ripe palate. A kick of zest adds structure to the finish of this Auslese GK styled wine. 2028-2053. (Oct 2019)"
