JJ Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel 2020


Pre-arrival due Mid-July

Sweet cherry, raspberry, mushrooms, smoke, jasmine, grapefruit, blood orange, beeswax and clove. Perfectly composed, pure and translucent. A marked difference in 2020 is the ethereal and delicate nature of the Golkaps. Indeed, across all wines are ripe fruits, yellow fruits, and darker citrus, but they have the weight, structure and tension of cooler vintages. For all that, this has the broadest palate of all the wines tasted and the most structure. In creeps some exoticism, Middle Eastern spice and the Cadburys chocolate bar, Crunchie. Juicy, silky, captivating and supremely beautiful. Waters Wine Co

“The 2020er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese GK was made from shriveled rather than botrytized fruit and was fermented down to noble-sweet levels of residual sugar. It offers a most gorgeous, superbly complex, and rather subtle nose of minty herbs, candied grapefruit, fine honeyed peach, anise, smoke, and herbs. The wine proves much richer and riper on the palate, where plenty of exotic and ripe fruits join the party. This fruity, smooth, and juicy side is nicely wrapped into zest and tension in the very long finish. Expect more than a decade of patience to get the full impact of this stunning wine. But you will not regret. 2035-2060.” 95 points, Mosel Fine Wines Issue 59

“So tight and introvert! Richly veined, as though there are waves of flavour crossing each other on the palate. So clean and brisk, yet with delightful sweetness and the suggestion of botrytis. A rich medley of vegetation. Dangerously approachable. Molten.” 17.5 points, Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com
