Tasting Notes

(Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese) AP: 15 06. This bright white-yellow colored wine starts off with an incredibly fresh and zesty show of cassis, verbena, white flowers and grapefruit, all underlined by a only a hint of pineapple and coconut. The feel on the palate is still marked by CO2 but is full of almost Kabinett-styled grapefruit zest. With airing, some riper and richer scents of pear cream come through, which give the wine more body and presence. The whole thing is still quite youthful, with an almost sweet-sour tension in need of integration. Give this gorgeous Spätlese a few years, and it will reward you with a stunning moment of Mosel Riesling. 2020-2035
