A promising batch of Riesling originally intended to be this years unique non-auction gold capsule bottling ended up finding its way into the 2004 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese A.P. #12. The result is a wine exhibiting great richness of fruit subtle notes of noble rot and a combination of gripping flavor intensity with delicacy of touch that has been a hallmark of the better Prum Auslesen for decades. The wines intense aromas still overlaid with considerable primary yeastiness are of baked and fresh apple honeysuckle fresh orange and vanilla. In the mouth this is bracing and dripping with fresh fruit yet subtly-tinged by honey and spice from botrytis. It is audaciously ripe mouth-coating and golden-berried in fruit character yet light and delicate to the touch suggestively creamy and soothing yet preserving an animating core of fresh fruit acidity. The long finish is similarly rich honeyed and coating yet bracing and invigorating with its fresh fruit fruit skin and wet stone elements. As is genera

Stunning! Very aromatic and expressive. Succulent, pure aromas of peach, apricot and lime. Well-balanced and harmonious.
