Joh. Jos. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese 2018
|Brand||Joh. Jos. Prum|
Wine AdvocateThe 2018 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese is coolish, precise and flinty on the elegant and complex yet always bright and seductive nose that offers lush and precise white stone fruit aromas. Intense and refined on the palate, this is a dense, highly elegant, tightly structured and sustainable Spätlese with a long and stimulatingly salty finish. A fabulous and serious WSU Spätlese. Tasted at the domain in September 2020.
Wine EnthusiastEditors' Choice For a bottling that usually requires years to show its colors, this surprisingly open, lavishly perfumed Spätlese wafts of pristine white peach and blossom. It's delightfully honeyed yet invigorating, balancing layers of apricot and yellow cherry flavors against crushed slate and dazzling acidity. While tempting in youth, it should improve through 2035.
