K&L Notes

Exactly what you want from one of Manfred's Wehleners, a Riesling with fantastic ripeness but that remains elegant. Cassis, white peach, raspberry, and passion fruit dominate. So rich with a captivatingly creamy texture on the palate and steely acid backbone. Fine slate terroir and lime soaked finish. According to Claude Kolm in the Fine Wine Review: "And so we come to what Stuart Pigott has justly called the world's greatest white wine estate. Dr. Manfred Prüm is now assisted by his talented daughter Katharina who, like him, is a lawyer. Dr. Manfred Prüm thinks of his 2005s as a combination of 2004 and 2003, more classic than 2003, and richer than 2004. The harvest here was early, beginning on 6 October, and finished rapidly, contrary to the usual practice of waiting and harvesting late for the top wines - The Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese is pure, deep, and steely with considerably more depth than the Himmelreich and also more finesse. This wine is quite young, and I would expect to cellar it a minimum of 10-15 years." (#113, November 2006)
