There's a truly staggering interplay of mineral freshness and super fine, white peach, mangosteen and fresh pineapple in this dangerously vibrant Auslese, which lifts you out of your chair. Enormous aging potential, but so seductive now. Drink now.

95pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2018 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese is very precise and intense on the concentrated and fleshy, deep and firmly structured, mineral and herbal nose. Round and generous on the palate, this is a sweet, piquant and salty, very intense and juicy Auslese that needs 10-15 years to get rid of its baby fat. Very promising. Rating: 95+

Winemaker Notes

The Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard has become intrinsically attached to the name of Joh. Jos. Prüm. The Estate owns five hectares of this majestic site. It offers perfect growing conditions for the Riesling grape with its deep, weather-beaten grey slate soil, good water support, extreme steepness of up to 70 % gradient, and its optimal south-south-west exposure. Wehlener Sonnenuhr is named after the sundial erected in the vineyard in 1842 by Jodocus Prüm, an ancestor of J.J. Prüm, to give the workers a better time orientation. The wines of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr possess excellent structure, show beautiful, ripe aromas and flavors (typically stone fruits), a fine minerality, and great depth and length. After having been aged for some years, the harmony, finesse and expression of these wines is unique.
