Food Pairings for Joh. Jos. Prüm Riesling Auslese Wehlener Sonnenuhr
Tasted the 2010. Very sweet and crisp.
Baked apple with a hint of peach and apricot on the nose. Well balanced with decent acidity. Had it with a Ceasar salad and it actually paired pretty well. I ordered another bottle for the wine cellar.
External Reviews for Joh. Jos. Prüm Riesling Auslese Wehlener Sonnenuhr
Cask sample. Beautiful, fresh, crushed grape character which is lively and refreshing. Medium-bodied with medium sweetness and a long fresh finish. Drinkable now.
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.
A white with rosebush and citrus character. Medium-bodied and lightly sweet, with lively acidity and a long, flavorful finish. Drink now.
This is an archetypal Prüm 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 won't be experienced for at least another two or three decades.
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.
Pink grapefruit, banana, cassis and lily perfume announce the extreme ripeness of fruit that informed the Prums’ 2009 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spatlese. Juicy and extroverted on the palate, it packs a sense of sassy brightness that perfectly compliments any tendency toward extravagant or over-indulgent ripeness. As to your being over-indulgent by drinking some, I’d say, “yes, you would be — fortunately.” I see no need to wait for a half dozen years to approach this. On the other hand, if you wait 25, this wine will still be waiting for you and in good shape.
While Prüm is renowned for his wines from the Wehlener Sonnenuhr, this Auslese demonstrated that the wines from the neighboring vineyard of Graacher Himmelreich can be equally as refined. This is creamy in texture and tone, its plush flavors of apricot and white peach backed by a savory minerality. The firm acidity keeps it feeling racy and fresh, with an intensely slatey minerality turning more prominent on the finish.
This vibrant, elegant and classical Graacher Himmelreich Spätlese shows an appealing interplay between a pronounced minerality, crisp acidity and fine fruit aromas and flavours. More ageing will result into even more harmony and finesse.
