97 points Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com): "Still very youthful on the nose, this is crammed with ripe peach, plus more delicate notes of pineapple and mangosteen. It’s a minor miracle that this kind of concentration can be packed into such a sleek, medium-bodied palate. What an amazing mouthfeel this has thanks to the seamless integration of slatey acidity and ripeness. Very long finish with spot-on balance. Drinkable now, but best from 2025. (11/7/23)"

96 points Anna Lee Iijima (Decanter): "While tightly wound in youth and too nervous to express itself fully, there's a core of sun-drenched peach and yellow cherry lusciousness that pulsates from within here. It's still subtle on the nose, but the palate can't hide the intensity of fruit and swirls of honey and hibiscus nectar waiting to unfurl. Delicate sweetness is balanced by a lifting spray of minerality and a spine of laser-edged acidity. Hold until 2030 at least; it's a wine to enjoy over decades. Alcohol 8.0%. Drinking Window: 2030-2070. (10/12/23)"

94 points Anne Krebiehl, MW (Vinous): "The 2022 Riesling Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese opens with a notion of baked peach, especially baked peach skin, aromatic, slightly caramelized with concentrated fruit. Peach compote sweeps onto the palate, ripe and still with bite, just as cooked peach flesh appears, expressive and sweet but not overdone. This entire flight is a lesson in restraint. The long finish and aftertaste are tempered with citrus, corralling that expressive peach. Lovely, restrained, elegant. (Sweet) Drink: 2025-2050. (Oct 2023)"

94 points Wine Spectator: "[$60/375ml list] An impressively balanced and expressive auslese, with a plush well of guava, passion fruit and apricot preserves set against a wall of minerals. Alpine herbs and vibrant acidity give this a zingy freshness and racy feel, which carries the opulence well. Plum skin bitterness and some good structure make this complex and harmonious. Stunning. Drink now through 2045. (2/28/24)"
