2003   Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Auslese*** trocken (Weisse Kapsel) Markus Molitor
Tasted from the 375-milliliter bottle in February and again two times in April 2017, the 2003 Riesling Zeltlinger Sonnenuhr Auslese *** (White Capsule)—AP 49 04—is very deep and intense as well as fascinatingly clear, fresh and precise on the nose, with smoky flavored apricot, lemon and grapefruit aromas. Very rich, smooth but fine and elegant, with immense power, a creamy texture and lots of glycerin, this a full-bodied, opulent and highly aromatic dry-styled Riesling. The round and luscious texture, fine tannins and super ripe stone fruit flavors almost remind me of a hybrid of a great Condrieu and an Alsatian grand cru blend rather than a Mosel Riesling. Well, it was fermented and aged in a new Burgundian oak pièce and might currently reflect more of Molitor's winemaking skills than the Zeltinger Sonnenuhr; but, in fact, it is a great, finessed and highly elegant wine from ungrafted, up to 120-year-old Riesling vines on blue slate. Although the 2003 is already 13.5 years old, this three-starred Auslese is still a baby that indicates a huge aging potential even from the small bottle. Doubtlessly, it is by far the greatest dry 2003 white wine I have tasted so far. The 2003 vintage was very sunny, ripe and dry, and most of its regular wines were matured to dead already in their youth. To reduce its richness and power and to give it the right structure in lack of the normal acidity and pH level, Markus opted for the new, small barrel.
