2003 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese
Young and unevolved, yet this shows remarkable clarity and delicacy for 2003. Very silky in texture and bright, framing the apricot, lime and slate flavors nicely. Very harmonious, with a long, lingering aftertaste. Drink now through 2020.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Notes of smoky minerals can be discerned in the nose of the 2003 Riesling Spatlese Wehlener Sonnenuhr. Light to medium-bodied, broad, and softly-textured, it displays a satiny personality with gun-flint flavors. Drink it between 2010 and 2020.
According to importer Rudi Wiest: "A cuvee of two selections will create a batch of smoky, petrol aromas powdered with cocoa dust, nutmeg and an unctuous ripe, extracted peach and pear. One selection brings an elegant structure and sleek form, while the second offers the fruit stuffing. 92 Öchsle."
