External Reviews for Joh.Jos. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett
Delicate aromas of cherry, apple blossom and sweet herbs. Firm apricot pit flavor, with a nice balance of sweetness and acidity to frame the palate. The elegant finish features persistent slate minerality. An excellent kabinett.
Alluring scents of honeysuckle and clover mingled with yeastiness; bittersweet notes of apple pip and skin, render the Prum 2009 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett an invigorating treat. Very subtly creamy, it nevertheless puts its emphasis on refreshment and clarity of flavors, with stony mineral character and inner-mouth floral perfume clearly discernable through gossamer folds of fruit. This finishes with terrific persistence yet understatement. A particularly restrained sense of sweetness and efficacious acids suggest to me a wine that could be enjoyed more in its first 3-5 years than is usually the case with Prum Rieslings. But it ought to keep well for at least 15 years
Floral and smoke aromas give way to peach, apple and lime flavors in this delicate, silky Riesling. All is well-integrated with the bright structure and lingers lazily on the long, mineral-tinged finish. Drink now through 2024.
Extremely fragrant, expressive and beautifully put together, offering peach, lime, slate and a hint of quinine flavors. Firm and balanced, it should age well into the next decade. Drink now through 2015.
Shows plenty of power, but remains light and crisp, offering focused flavors of mineral, peach, and ruby grapefruit. Finishes with white pepper and hints of savory herb. Very pure. Drink now through 2024.
Comparing this with the Graacher Kabinett decisively displays the difference of terroir. Vanilla and baked apple flavors are here folded into a polished, creamy palate. The finish is delicate but extended, subtle apple pit bitterness and slate minerality adding interest along the way.
The Prum 2007 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett displays the classic fresh apple, apple blossom, and vanilla of the site. Crushed stone and the bitter side of the vanilla bean help temper the sweetness here. This shows alluring creaminess along with refined delicacy, finishing long on fresh apple, sweet floral perfume, and wet stone along with hints of anise and vanilla. "This is Kabinett the way we imagine it," remarks Katharine Prûm, although hardly surprisingly, the estate's quantities at this Pradikat level are smaller than are those at Spätlese grade. And I would add that it is unlikely very many vintages of this iconic Mosel will age more expressively or successfully than the one under consideration here.
