Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese 1990

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Near perfect, giving you everything you want in a young German Riesling. Extremely intense honeysuckle, rose, peach and mineral aromas. Medium-bodied, very concentrated and racy, with only a hint of sweetness up front and a long, dry, minerally finis... Wine Spectator. A Riesling wine from Mosel Saar Ruwer in Germany. 1990 Prum, Joh Jos Riesling Spatlese Wehlener Sonnenuhr 750ml

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
