Joh. Jos. Pruem Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett 2014
Riesling | Germany
Shows plenty of power, but remains light and crisp, offering focused flavors of mineral, peach, and ruby grapefruit. Finishes with white pepper and hints of savory herb.
The Wehlener Sonnenuhr is, without question, the most famous of vineyard sites within the Prüm Estate if not all of the Mosel Valley. With its south-southwest exposure, weathered grey slatem and ridiculous steepness (up to 70%) it provides an optimal growing climate for Riesling. The wines from here show fantastic depth of stone fruit flavors accompanied by a fine line of minerality and length. From the cellar of J.J. Prüm, this is a perennially classic, collectible Riesling.
