Joh Jos Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese 2013
The Mosel River Valley is probably the most famous and arguably the most admired wine region of Germany. In its wider sense, it includes the adjacent Saar and Rüwer (hence Mosel-Saar-Rüwer), both tributaries of the Mosel River, however it is the middle Mosel (mittelmosel), in particular between and including the towns of Bernkastel-Kues and Erden that the most brilliant wines tend to be produced. Berkastel, Grach, Wehlen, and Zeltingen are some of the most famous wine towns here. All of the vineyards of J.J. Prüm are located within this prestigious strip. The Prüm family history in the Mosel dates back as early as 1156! However Johann Josef Prüm (1873 - 1944), founded the J.J. Prüm estate in 1911.
Again, a remarkable expression of the vineyard. High fidelity Wehlener. Ripe peach and nectarine aromas, yet crunchy and racy and unbelievably pure across the palate. Again, that word “electricity!” is the only one to capture the energy on offer here. Ripe, ample acidity is the tail that wags the dog and drives the super long finish. A great Wehlener. “The 2013 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese offers a noble sweet, very fine aroma of wet and flinty stones intertwined with grapefruit and lemon aromas. Lovely sweet and intense, but also delicate on the palate, this medium to full-flavored 7.5% alcohol wine reveals a great elegance and finesse and finishes with delicately juicy, grapefruit aromas.” Rating: 95 points, Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
