2016 Joh Jos Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese
The 2016 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese (AP 13 17) is clear, fresh and vegetal/floral on the pretty complex but clear and refreshingly flinty nose. Bottled with 8.5% alcohol, this is a lush, piquant and well-structured Spätlese with good grip and a perceptible sweetness. The finish is intense and complex and reveals a firm mineral structure.
Stephan Reinhardt - Wine Advocate #236 (Apr 2018)
Heady scents of honeysuckle and heliotrope vie for attention with ripe pear and quince. The creamy palate is enveloping and loaded with inner-mouth perfume; hints of mint, sage and pink grapefruit lend cooling and exotic allure. (I know it will strike some people as sacrilege to suggest this, but imagine that a bit of Scheurebe has been blended in.) This finishes with luscious intensity, if for now not the striking transparency of the corresponding Graacher Himmelreich.
David Schildknecht - Vinous
Pure, flying like a butterfly across the palate, this starts with mineral and floral notes up front, but unfolds to show multiple layers of flavor, remaining seductive throughout. The peach, glazed pear and honey flavors are perfectly balanced, with power and force seemingly reserved. Shows nice expression. Drink now through 2037.
Aleks Zecevic - Wine Spectator
Stunning succulence and subtlety. The concentration and power are completely underplayed until you get to the brain-rattling finish of this Mosel masterpiece. Drink or hold.
