For centuries the Prüm family has lived and made wine in the village of Wehlen. Their ancestors were living in or near Wehlen as early as the year 1156. Today Manfred Prüm runs his family's historic estate impeccably. Some of the greatest, most long-lived wines of Germany are made at J.J. Prum. The 55 acre estate consists of about 90% ungrafted, old vines. Holdings are in the best parts of the top Middle-Mosel sites: Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, Bernkasteler Lay and Bernkasteler Badstube. Plantings of the estate are 100% Riesling on steeply sloping Devon schist soil. Average annual production is about 15,000 cases. The harvest at J.J. Prüm is always extremely late. This allows the Riesling grapes in the cool Middle Mosel climate to be picked at ideal ripening conditions, the basis to produce wines of superb quality

This Auslese has peach, apricot and baked apple aromas with velvety, tropical fruit in the mouth and a long, persistent finish. Serve with Indian and Asian dishes, and/or soft cheeses with apple, quince and fig jams on top.

The 2021 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese is concentrated and fresh on the aromatic nose that is immediately present but also still reductive. Ripe stone fruit aromas intermingle with notes of crushed stones on a deep foundation of aromas from the soil and the fruit of old vines. On the palate, the 2021 is very fine but also intense, savory, saline and lush, leading to a long, intense and highly digestible finish with crunchy and cleansing slate features. Again, this is a fabulous Auslese from Prüm's iconic Sonnenuhr. 7% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine in May 2023.
