Joh.Jos. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett 2008

External Review:

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.

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

Candied apple, toasted almond and vanilla from beginning to end. Nice nip of slate and apple pit in the finish. Clear, pure and lovely in its simplicity.

Beautiful. Spicy and exotic, evoking vanilla, banana and tropical fruit aromas and flavors married to a vibrant structure and harmonious texture. It's all presented in an elegant package.

This vintage is highly praised for elegant wines with a very ripe, aromatic fruitiness and an extremely harmonious acidity. This Kabinett shows pure, intense, deep fruit that is slightly mineral, all typical of Prüm's wines. With great length and just a hint of sweetness, it is a wonderful representation of what German wines are.

An initial burnt-match smell should dissipate with either time in the bottle or aeration in the glass. Underneath is a blast of juicy peach and lime-tinged and a delicate, crystalline framework. Long, mineral finish. Best from 2001 through 2007.

Beautifully displayed elements of slate, peach and citrus blossom mark this German white, all integrated and suspended on a feathery, open texture. No shortage of concentration though, with a lingering finish. Drink now through 2005.

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.
