As the Prüm family has such a small slice of the Sonnenuhr vineyard in Zeltingen, it is seldom included in tastings such as this, where clients of the distributor and one of their top retailers have been invited to taste the new vintage, and it was quite generous of both to include the wine at our dinner tasting. This too is surprisingly expressive today, delivering a superb aromatic constellation of apple, lime zest, a touch of tangerine, complex slate minerality, wild yeasts and both fruit blossoms and lilacs in the upper register. On the palate the wine refined, medium-full and dancing, with lovely interplay of pristine fruit, plenty of floral tones and a great base of slate. The finish is long, precise and filigreed, with fine focus and grip on the very long finish. A beautiful wine in the making. 2026-2060.
Katharina's 2016 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Spätlese (AP 06 17) is super clear, precise and aromatic on the nose, showing good concentration that is perfectly interwoven with the smoky minerality of the Sonnenuhr. Super lush and round on the palate, this is a gorgeously rich and supple Spätlese with remarkable finesse and elegance. The acidity is ripe and fully integrated. The Zeltinger drinks perfectly today—and it won't survive in any cellar, because you just can't resist it. (SR)
Fresh apple garlanded in honeysuckle and heliotrope sets the tone for a generously juicy, subtly creamy palate seductively loaded with inner-mouth floral perfume and leading to an inhalative, delicate but seriously sustained finish vividly underlain with wet stone and tinged with bittersweet, smoky nut oils and mouthwatering salinity. (DS)
A well-delineated, very floral style, with jasmine and bergamot aromas and flavors of lychee and persimmon. Light yet packed with flavor, showing great length and harmony. (AZ)
