J.J. Prum "Wehlener Sonnenuhr" Riesling Spätlese 2016
95 Points John Gillman
The 2016 Wehlener “Sonnenuhr” Spätlese AP #12 was another wine from the vintage that I had a chance to retaste in May at the estate and came away as impressed as I was back in February. The gorgeous nose jumps from the glass in a classic blend of pear, white cherry, orange zest, bee pollen, vanilla bean, a great base of slate, spring flowers and the faintest hint of petrol. On the palate the wine is medium-full, zesty and absolutely precise, with great depth and nascent complexity, perfect balance and a very long, very youthful and very, very promising finish. This will be a great bottle of Spätlese from the Wehlener Sonnenuhr!
