Joh. Jos. Prüm Riesling Auslese Wehlener Sonnenuhr 2003
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.
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
External Reviews for Joh. Jos. Prüm Riesling Auslese Wehlener Sonnenuhr
Bright metallic-gold. Moderately full-bodied. Full acidity. Highly extracted. Flowers, stone fruits slate. Attractive, deep floral aromas reveal a heavyweight, rich style with strong minerally notes through the finish. Undeveloped as yet, this has great structure and needs time.
Fine bouquet of ripe apple, vanilla and sweet herbs. The palate is rich, with a salty, resinous character complementing the undeniably sweet apricot fruit. Unctuous yet lively auslese with a long, complex finish. Needs time.
Aromas of ripe pineapple and spice seem to jump out of the glass. The drinker of this wine will be rewarded with a complex, mouthfilling combination of well defined ripe pinepple that seems to stay on the palate forever before the flavors finally trail off into spice and slate on the finish. This bottle provides a shining example of why the wines of J.J. Prum are among the highest quality and most ageworthy in all of Germany.
Wow. This '97 Auslese almost overpowers the sensory receptors with its succulent, pure aromas and flavors of peach, apple and slate, rapierlike acidity and brilliant clarity. But it's never too much, as it remains balanced and harmonious all the way through. Drink now through 2010.
The 2003 Riesling Auslese Wehlener Sonnenuhr displays hints of minerals lurking below its wafts of sulfur. A seamless, creamy-textured wine, it is easygoing, plump, and exhibits flavors reminiscent of poached pears, cotton candy, and sweet minerals. Drink it between 2010 and 2020.
Pale golden yellow. Subdued bouquet of passion fruit, nut oil and acacia blossom. The lusciously sweet tropical fruit flavors are highlighted by a refreshing gingery acidity that keeps the palate light in spite of the wine's density. Although elegant and aristocratic, this auslese is also quite full-bodied, finishing astoundingly long, on a spicy botrytis note.
Tasted blind in the same flight as Prüm's Bernkasteler Badstube auslese, this wine is flashier, more of an attention-grabber, with amazing purity and intensity of fruit backed by great length. The fruit flavors of green apple, pineapple and lime are underscored by slate-driven minerality, and the wine, although plump and amply endowed, is well balanced, with superb posture provided by sinewy acids. Surprisingly approachable now, but could last as long as 50 years.
