Wehlener "Sonnenuhr" Spatlese, Mosel
A ten year old Riesling that is bright, crisp and beautiful. Bursting with minerality and accentuated with tastes of Meyer lemon, peach and honey. The nose reveals fresh pine needles and the slightest waft of petrol. Truly a wine drinking in the very best of its years. Dungeness crab is an ideal match with this remarkable wine.
David Schildknecht for The Wine Advocate:
The aroma of cinnamon, honeysuckle, and vanilla-tinged watermelon and apple leads to a mouth-coating, rich yet delicate palate with nut oil, vanilla, and wet stones underlying the wine’s exuberant, juicy fruit. Vividly fresh apple and melon along with salted lime, nut paste, honey, and wet stones inform a persistent finish and complete a picture balancing ripeness and considerable overt sweetness with delicacy and lift that is typical for the long-lived wines of this estate.
There tend to be multiple Prum bottlings of a given combinations of site and Pradikat, but I am never privy to an overview of these. To sin on the side of safety, I have noted the A.P. # for wines I tasted from bottle, but Manfred Prum routinely seeks to assure me that any alternate bottlings will not differ substantially from those I have tasted, and consistent excellence – like ageworthiness – has long been a hallmark of Joh. Jos. Prum Rieslings.
