93 points "The wine actually labeled as 2004 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Spatlese, harvested in early November, adds elements of green tea and shriveled berry character to the basic Wurzgarten aromatic themes of fresh kiwi and strawberry. On the palate, this represents the next level up in richness of texture and honeyed ripeness of fruit, yet also of fresh and frisky lime citricity and saline minerality. The finish offers a concentration of fruit and mineral that approaches bitterness."

94 points "Wine Spectator 96 points: "A completely seductive and appealing '01 spätlese. Seamless and airy in texture, yet layered with peach, citrus and mineral aromas and flavors enmeshed in the delicate frame. Lovely finish. Drink now through 2015. 1,500 cases made. –BS" (03/31/2003). Robert Parker 94 points: "Aromas of candied limes, smoky slate, and white pepper are found in the explosive nose of the 2001 Riesling Spatlese Wehlener Sonnenuhr. A sultry, seductive wine, it luxuriously slathers the taster's palate with rich, yet focused, layers of juicy lemons, red cherries, currants, blueberries, limes, and pears. Notes of candied raspberries make an appearance in this exceptional offering's unbelievably long finish. Pure, elegant, powerful, deep, and densely packed, it should get even better with cellaring. Projected maturity: 2007-2020+." (Wine Advocate #144). " Best 2008-2020
