Gorgeous bouquet of green apple, vanilla, and showing floral notes. Palate is smooth as silk! Flavors of pear and honey dominate, leading into a long velvety finish. Excellent wine! 93pts. Tasted 04/15/13

100% Riesling grown on solid blue slate from the steeply sloped Wehlener Sonnenuhr (sundial) vineyard. Star bright straw yellow color with very faint legs. Pronounced aromatic intensity of ripe peach, apricot, quince, pineapple and mango, with hints of orange blossom. Plenty of minerality present especially wet stone and the ever present petrol along with honey, almonds and allspice. High mouthwatering acidity, long medium sweet finish, medium + flavor intensity, medium bodied, well balanced, complex, and very good quality. I really enjoyed this wine and would love to have some spicy Asian food like Thai or Schezuan cooking to balance out the sweetness of this wine. Definitely a winner for me. 4/5

My instincts suggest that those willing to wait 10andndash;12 years will find an outstanding wine when they open the 2003 Riesling Spandauml;tlese Graacher Himmelreich yet, at present, it does not reveal the depth required to merit such an exalted score. Light to medium-bodied, it displays a broad, supple personality filled with creamy stones, slate, and smoke. Projected maturity: 2014andndash;2024.

Aromatic, this Riesling shows delicacy and balance in its floral, apricot and citrus notes. Itandrsquo;s airy and appealing, with a mouthwatering tanginess. Drink now through 2020.

Quince preserves, baked apple, lily, gardenia, and hints of caramel and vanilla mark the nose of the Prüm 2007 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese. With richness yet delicacy and lift it saturates the palate with rich fruit, liquid flowers, vanilla cream, and savory, saline, shrimp shell reduction-like mineral essences. This intense, pure, subtly and truly nobly botrytized Auslese has umami with a capital "U."

From famed producer JJ Prum comes this atypical, hot vintage Riesling that will convert almost anyone into an off-dry wine lover.

Pure, precise and fresh-tasting, with an intense clarity to the apple, pear and tangerine flavors that feature notes of slate and vanilla. The crystalline finish is long, pure and precise, with hints of smoke and anise. Best from 2014 through 2040.

My instincts suggest that those willing to wait 10–12 years will find an outstanding wine when they open the 2003 Riesling Spätlese Graacher Himmelreich yet, at present, it does not reveal the depth required to merit such an exalted score. Light to medium-bodied, it displays a broad, supple personality filled with creamy stones, slate, and smoke. Projected maturity: 2014–2024.

Subtle bouquet of gooseberry and nut oil, with a trace of something floral. On the palate the creamy nectarine fruit is counterpointed by citrus and slate. The long finish blends spices and mineral salts.

Winemaker's Notes:

J.J. Prum wines are among the most exciting and delicious Riesling wines of the Middle Mosel. Prum wines have a reputation for being long-lived because if their slow development. Dr. Prum suggests even his Kabinett can be cellared for up to 5 years. Prum wines possess full-flavored pure fruit and piquant spiciness that express the true characteristics of Mosel wines.
