2001 Joh. Jos. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese

SKU #1278222 96 points Wine Spectator

 * #8 of 2003 Top-100 Wines * A completely seductive and appealing '01 spätlese. Seamless and airy in texture, yet layered with peach, citrus and mineral aromas and flavors enmeshed in the delicate frame. Lovely finish.  (3/2003)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Prum calls this wine "typically somewhat reserved vis-a-vis the Graacher Auslese" but I apprehend a level of sheer flavor intensity that goes beyond the other wines here today, with apple, honey and spice supported by a volatile esterous note of botrytis and even a prickly Eiswein-like whiff of chili pepper. Impressive custardy richness in the mouth, yet ripe, refreshing citricity keeps the wine dynamic and salty minerality helps extend the finish. (DS)  (11/2002)
