2018 Joh. Jos. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese Mosel

SKU #1486279 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Ripe pear, mirabelle and lychee are garlanded with heliotrope and lily. The delicate but glossy palate introduces overripe Persian melon to accompany the already effusive fruit and decadent liquid perfume promised on the nose. Seed piquancy and a kiss of wet stone lend welcome counterpoint to the lusciously lingering finish. (There is also an auctioned bottling of Sonnenuhr Spätlese – A.P. #17 – which I did not have an opportunity to taste.) (DS) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark For a bottling that usually requires years to show its colors, this surprisingly open, lavishly perfumed Spätlese wafts of pristine white peach and blossom. It's delightfully honeyed yet invigorating, balancing layers of apricot and yellow cherry flavors against crushed slate and dazzling acidity. While tempting in youth, it should improve through 2035. (AI) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Well-structured and harmonious, with a silky mouthfeel, this is very charming, yet powerful and expressive, revealing saffron and jasmine aromas. The palate features tropical fruit flavors of guava and passion fruit, followed by sweet Asian spice notes. Star anise and apricot marmalade hints extend on the finish. (AZ) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

92 points Mosel Fine Wines: "The 2018er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese is still slightly marked by reductive residues from its spontaneous fermentation and only gradually reveals its attractive scents of white melon, apricot blossom, herbs, and spices. The wine comes over as quite subtle on the creamy and suave palate, and develops more structure and cut as some zesty elements of grapefruit, fresh pineapple, and minty herbs come through in the slightly ample finish. This overall rather round expression of fruity-styled Riesling lives from its incredible complexity and subtlety. (10/2019)"
