Joh. Jos. Prum Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Spatlese 2011

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Vibrant, with concentrated sweet basil and thyme accents to the quince, mango and tarte Tatin flavors. Very crunchy and bright at midpalate, showing notes of honeycream, spice and mineral that mingle effortlessly. Drink now through 2030.

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

Attractive floral, apple and hazelnut aromas. The creamy texture of apricot fruit is paired with saline acidity. Well balanced but still somewhat withdrawn. The aristocratic finish displays appealing length.
