Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese Versteigerung, J. J. Prum 2013
Silver colored the 2013 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese Gold Capsule (AP #1414) is exceptional because it was selected like an Auslese, but from healthy berries which were very rare in 2013. The wine offers a very clear, lean and slightly earthy and greenish aroma leading to a very pure, minerally piquant yet balanced and complex palate with a lingering salinity and a fresh and grippy finish.

(Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese Auction)
This is a surprisingly intense and rich expression of Spätlese (at least by the usual standards of this Estate known for its ethereal wines) in which pear cream, quince and candied grapefruit woe for attention. The wine is powerful yet nicely focused on the palate and leaves a clean and long feeling of creamy fruits in the finish. The wine, which lives on intensity and complexity, could turn into a delicious Auslese-styled wine at maturity. 2023-2043
