    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2001 vintage of this wine was ranked #8 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2003

    Despite its still youthful freshness, this rich and at the same time elegant Spätlese (literally: "late-harvest")from the famous Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard shows a fine fruity, floral Riesling characteristic and an underlying hint of mineral from the grey Devonian slate soil.

    Serve this refreshing wine slightly chilled! Enjoy it just by itself, if young with spicy dishes and - especially when more matured - in combination with seafood or poultry, but also red meat.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The Prum 2008 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese – as with the corresponding Kabinett – is aromatically more marked by the residues of fermentation than are its immediate siblings. Hints of mango, quince, and musk added to the more predictable apple, vanilla, and liquid floral perfume and lend this an exotic touch, while its mineral side is dominated by striking salinity that enhances the savory stimulation of a long finish as well as offering a fascinating foil to the wine’s creaminess of texture and sheer ripeness. And while the nose needs to clear up here, the palate displays a remarkable sense of clarity to a wealth of flowers and spices. The wine seems to coat the palate while hovering above it, to seduce without touching. This should put on quite a show over the next 30 or more years.

    This houses its ripe fruit in a delicate fram, feeling energetic and impecably harmonious. The aromas of whipe peach and citrus are saturated with slatiness, turning floral on the long finish.
