150cl * 8.0% ABV * Mosel, Germany
Prüm undoubtedly offers some of the finest wines in the Mosel. Founded in 1911 by Johann Josef Prüm, the estate has developed a reputation for premium level Rieslings, which display an extraordinary purity of fruit and distinctive minerality.
A very expressive and intense nose of peach, rose, citrus and steely aromas. There is also a smoky gun flint note and a hint of white pepper. Very complex. The palate is very juicy, this is the freshest of the three Kabinetts and the vibrant acidity is really mouth-watering. The finish is long and moreish with lovely stone and orchard fruit and cool minerals.
Drink 2022 - 2070
"The 2020 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett offers a sensitive, sublime, complex, exquisite and slightly flinty nose with a coolish and delicate expression of stewed apricots and some greenish berries, whereas the first stony character remains. This irresistible and noble bouquet leads to a round and lush yet refined and savoury palate, with coolish apricot flavours on the long and sustainably salty finish that is firmly structured but elegant and highly stimulating. This is a superb, very elegant and complex, sustainably structured Sonnenuhr. This is a great pleasure to drink, but you can easily keep this Kabinett for over three decades. 8% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Drink 2022-2070" Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate (July 2022)
