Winemaker Notes

The J.J. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese has excellent structure, ripe aromas and flavors of stone fruits, like peach, a fine minerality, great depth and length. There is a unique harmony, finesse and expression after aging with this wine. There is also a beautiful balance between pronounced minerality, vibrant acidity, expressive fruit aromas and flavors.

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling
Welcome to the heart of the Mosel! A great floral beauty with an extremely precise balance of delicate fruit sweetness and filigree acidity. Drink or hold.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese (AP 23 17) is still discreet, floral and finely mineral rather than fruity on the nose compared to the other 2016 Spätlesen. Lush, piquant and juicy on the palate, this is a firm but sensual Sonnenuhr with remarkable finesse, lightness and lingering salinity. Tasted March 2018.

Wine Spectator
Intense but lithe, with lively acidity that provides fine cut to the mango, slate and chamomile flavors. A savory mineral note stands out toward the end, with graceful floral hints lingering on the pure-tasting finish. Drink now through 2038.

Jeb Dunnuck
Revealing a hint of green in its color, the 2016 Riesling Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese is rocking stuff that delivers mouthwatering notes of sweet peach, sugared citrus, and mint in a medium-bodied, off-dry, balanced style. It’s one of the more fruit forward efforts here yet stays vibrant, clean, and balanced.

Wine & Spirits

This is just beginning to settle into itself, the wine’s reductive scents turn- ing toward kelp and umami, the fruit finding crisp definition among notes of peach jam and red-blushed mangos. It’s earthy, fruity and fascinating, and structured to age well.
