2019 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett Mosel

SKU #1517503 97 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The AP #9 Kabinett from the Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard is quite a bit more reserved out of the blocks than the Badstube Kabinett, but this is the inherent beauty of the slow to unfold, but timeless Sonnenuhr. With some nurturing, the wine blossoms nicely to show its immense promise, wafting from the glass in a mix of pear, white cherry, vanilla bean, slate, lilacs, fruit blossoms, a touch of wild yeasts and just a hint of lime zest in the upper register. On the palate the wine is vibrant, medium-bodied and beautifully structured, with zesty acidity, laser-like focus and grip, a lovely core of fruit and endless mineral drive on the long, perfectly balanced and still very youthful finish. There is amazing complexity waiting here to blossom, but it is going to take some time before this wine truly starts drinking with generosity. Just be patient! Inner quote mark (3/2021)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Still some yeastiness from the wild ferment, but this opens beautifully with aeration. A entire botanic garden of flowers of all colors and origins. Concentrated, yet so filigree and delicate, the finish super long and as refreshing as an Alpine stream. Perfect balance in this delightful no-man’s land between dry and sweet. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (4/2021)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett offers a clear and delicate bouquet of very fine slate and bright, perfectly ripe fruit aromas. Round and piquant on the palate, this is another filigreed and crystalline Kabinett with an intense, compactand very promising finish. The sweetness is delicate and well-countered by the mineral grip and salinity. (SR) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very pale and greenish. Intense but reserved nose. Marked crystalline character with undertow. Much to chew on. Lots in reserve. Quite a bit of extract on the palate. Dry finish. 17++/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

K&L Notes

94 points Mosel Fine Wines: "The 2019er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett offers a discreet, very elegant, and gorgeously floral nose of white peach, herbs, almond cream, rosemary, and mint. The wine proves superbly balanced on the palate as the white juicy fruits are packed into delicately ripe and zesty acidity. The finish is both superbly smooth and nicely tight and focused. The wine leaves one with a great sense of mineral tension in the aftertaste. This is a gorgeous Kabinett in the making." (10/2020)
