External Reviews for Joh. Jos. Prüm Riesling Auslese Wehlener Sonnenuhr
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.
Pungent aromas of slate and flowers give way to peach and lime in this unevolved Riesling. The texture is supersilky, with great harmony among all the elements. Terrific length. Needs time. Best from 2014 through 2040.
This is an archetypal Pruuml;m Auslese, from its aristocratic poise and silky finesse to its vibrant energy and crystalline complexity. Its sleek fuselage of fruit feels succulent without needing to be overly rich, and its subtle, mineral-drenched flavors unfold in kaleidoscopic detail on the long and fragrant finish. At the same time, its youthfulness is almost painfully evident, a reminder that drinking this wine in optimum maturity is a pleasure that wonrsquo;t be experienced for at least another two or three decades.
Fresh apple and marzipan aromas. In the mouth, baked apple and vanilla custard are accented by fresh citrus. Both richer and denser, as well as brighter in acids, more sharply defined in its minerality and spicier than the Graacher.
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.
Cask sample. Beautiful, fresh, crushed grape character which is lively and refreshing. Medium-bodied with medium sweetness and a long fresh finish. Drinkable now.
Pale golden yellow. Classy bouquet of ripe apple, vanilla and sweet herbs. Rich on the palate, with a salty, resinous character and undeniably sweet apricot fruit. Unctuous yet vibrantly spicy, with a long, complex finish. This still needs time but will be a great auslese.
