Joh. Jos. Prüm Riesling Auslese Wehlener Sonnenuhr Mosel 2012

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

A minerally and racy style, with well-integrated nectarine, melon and ginger flavors. Jellied citrus notes linger on the lush and focused finish, featuring hints of celery salt. Drink now through 2038.

J.J. Prüm is a member of the Großer Ring Verband Deutscher Prädikats- und Qualitätsweingüter. The estate has 14 acres of holdings in the Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Bernkasteler Lay, Bernkasteler Badstube and Zeltinger Sonnenuhr vineyards. Only Riesling is grown and harvested at these sites. The most important of these sites are Wehlener Sonnenuhr and Graacher Himmelreich, in terms of both quantity and quality for the winery. Seventy percent of the vines are ungrafted. Depending on the vintage, the average annual production is 10,000 to 13,000 cases of wine. Stuart Pigott says of J.J. Prum that "since the early 1920's its wines have been among Germany’s best Rieslings with the Mosel’s vivacious aroma and racy elegance in its highest form". Wine writer Stephen Brook says that "The wines, whether a modest Kabinett or an opulent Beerenauslese, are the epitome of filigree elegance: light in body but intense in flavour, exquisitely balanced and precisely tuned, and capable of the most extra-ordinary longevity".  Read less

Pale golden yellow. Candied papaya, persimmon, clove and a vague hint of smoky botrytis on the nose. Luscious, creamy peach nectar flavor is nicely framed and accented by a splash of salty minerality. Richer and denser than the spätlese, showing excellent length, but not necessarily much better.

Fresh and smoke-flavored, ripe, white-stone-fruit aromas along with herbal and crushed stone notes on the nose of the 2013 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese (AP #18 13) lead to a light-footed, piquant, elegant, lingering juicy and salty finish that is absolutely stimulating and reveals great complexity.
