S.A. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett Riesling 2007
Aroma: Fresh and pleasantly fruity
Taste: Flavors of lemon and peach against a mineral backdrop
Well-matched with salads, seafood and light veal dishes.
Four 2007 kabinetts from the Sonnenuhr vineyard in one flight, and all scored 90 points or better, including this beauty, which features white peaches, honeysuckle and a squirt of lime to go along with pear and vanilla notes. It’s round and lush yet balanced, if somewhat on the rich, sweet side.
This feels full and ripe, with floral aromas of stone fruit and tangerine. There's a lovely sense of savory, slatey minerality under the fruitiness, and this should develop more complexity in time.
Apricot and honey flavors gain depth from stone and lime notes in this slim, precise white. There's enough flesh to match the crisp acidity, and this lingers nicely. Drink now through 2020. 4,500 cases made.
