Estate Notes

Joh. Jos Prüm, Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel 2005 was purchased in its original case.

The famed Prüm portfolio includes a number of truly illustrious vineyards, but it is undoubtedly the vines in the Sonnenuhr (lit.sundial) on the opposite bank to the town of Wehlen that produce the most iconic wines. These are long lived and represent some of the finest wines coming out of Germany today based ongreat sites, old vines, low yields and very late harvesting and selection of only the best berries. The non-interventionist winemaking is as natural as possible to let their fabulous terroirs shine through.

Reviews

"[tasted from an auction lot] the nose exhibits a degree of botrytis ennoblement – honey, hints of white raisin, and apple jelly – as well as an oily-rich texture typical of Beerenauslese. But this too draws on a reservoir of bright, juicy, fresh fruit. Mango, pineapple, caramelized apple, apricot preserve, vanilla, white raisin, warm honey, and brown spice all contribute to the abundant richness on display here, yet there are fine notes of flowers and mineral salts and a lovely sense of lift despite such far-gone ripeness, botrytis, and sheer density as this likely 50-year wine displays.

“The characteristics of great Riesling from the Prum estate coincide with one of the most striking virtues of 2007 Mosel Rieslings in general, namely the ability to combine intensity of aroma and flavor with delicacy, and caressing richness with vivacity. In a sense, the best wines in this year’s collection are like Prum-squared in their distinctiveness and expressivity.” eRobertParker.com
