About Joh. Jos. Prüm: "Few estates in the world can claim to have maintained the highest quality standards uninterrupted for half a century and more. Joh Jos Prüm, the most famous of the many Mosel wine estates bearing the Prüm name, is one estate that can. 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.” - Stuart Pigott, The Wine Atlas of Germany
“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. With the rise of so many excellent winemakers in the region, one might have supposed that J.J. Prüm, with its profound conservatism, might have been overtaken and left behind. Not a bit of it. The Estate remains where it has been for decades: at the summit.” - Stephen Brook, The Wines of Germany, Mitchell Beazley
The 2020er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese offers a superbly spicy, herbal, and refreshing nose of rosemary, vineyard peach, almond cream, white flowers, mint, and cassis. The wine is superbly well-balanced on the palate, where delicious creamy and fruity flavors of almond, vineyard peach, and tangerine make for a pure and smooth feeling. The finish is very long, nicely structured, and well-delineated. This is a superb Spätlese which only now requires some patience for its elements to integrate. 2030-2050.
