The Prum 2008 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese - as with the corresponding Kabinett - is aromatically more marked by the residues of fermentation than are its immediate siblings. Hints of mango, quince, and musk added to the more predictable apple, vanilla, and liquid floral perfume and lend this an exotic touch, while its mineral side is dominated by striking salinity that enhances the savory stimulation of a long finish as well as offering a fascinating foil to the wine’s creaminess of texture and sheer ripeness. And while the nose needs to clear up here, the palate displays a remarkable sense of clarity to a wealth of flowers and spices. The wine seems to coat the palate while hovering above it, to seduce without touching. This should put on quite a show over the next 30 or more years. (93+, DS)
Pungent aromas of slate, violet and black currant are immediate and intense. The flavors show pure lime, peach and mineral salt, matched to a creamy texture and a vibrant structure. Fine length. Best from 2012 through 2027.
Crisp aromas of passion fruit, nut oils and cinnamon. Rich, sleek and invigorating, with the creamy tropical fruit flavors nonetheless remaining light and ethereal. Well-balanced, elegant and impeccably long.
Delicate lemony color. Fragrant nose of peach and apricot crème pastry, with hints of sherbet and grapefruit and a stony mineral focus. Crisp, racy with a youthful fruit cocktail medley of flavors. Light-bodied but focused and taut. Not hugely concentrated, but well balanced and persistent.
Seems more open than the Kabinett, more evident fruit at the outset though still that distinctive reductive nose. Intensely mineral. Then rich and peachy on the palate, filling the mouth in a delicate but enveloping fashion. Streamlined with a lovely line. Drink 2013-2025. (17.5/20 points)
