Joh. Jos. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese 2014


SKU 16898


The wines of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr possess an excellent structure, show beautiful, ripe aromas and flavours (typically stone fruits, like peach), a fine minerality and great depth and length. Especially after having been aged for some years, their harmony, finesse and expression is unique. This Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese is a very classical Mosel Riesling Spätlese with a beautiful balance between a pronounced minerality, a vibrant acidity and expressive fruit aromas and flavours.

Wine AdvocateVery fine, bright fruit and fine stone/slate perfume flavors open the noble 2014 Riesling Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese (AP #23). This is a full-bodied, round, intense, piquant and kicking Wehlener Sonnenuhr with a very juicy and intense sweetness, but a lingering minerality. Very sophisticated and complex, this is extremely promising. Don't drink before 2022, but certainly before you die.

Wine SpectatorPowerful and concentrated flavors of roasted peach, dried pear and glazed pineapple are focused and offer plenty of dried savory accents in this white. Drink now through 2030.

Wine EnthusiastWhile subdued and closed off at initial tasting, time and aeration seem to bring out this wine's vibrant tangerine and apricot perfume. The spry palate is delicately sweet, juxtaposing fresh, primary stone fruit and lime flavors against a backdrop of savory earth and nut. It's a quiet wine that should gain power and depth with maturity. Hold until 2020.
