Winemaker Notes

The wines of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr possess an excellent structure, show beautiful, ripe aromas and flavours (typically stone fruits, like peach), a fine minerality and great depth and length. Especially after having been aged for some years, their harmony, finesse and expression is unique. This Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese is a very classical Mosel Riesling Auslese, a fine yet racy wine, combining elegance and complexity and showing a beautiful balance between fruit aromas and flavours, a crisp acidity and fine minerality. Although this wine is very appealing now already, it will improve a lot with ageing in the years to come and be enjoyable for decades.

Critical Acclaim

JS 95
James Suckling
Stunning succulence and subtlety. The concentration and power are completely underplayed until you get to the brain-rattling finish of this Mosel masterpiece. Drink or hold.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Pure, flying like a butterfly across the palate, this starts with mineral and floral notes up front, but unfolds to show multiple layers of flavor, remaining seductive throughout. The peach, glazed pear and honey flavors are perfectly balanced, with power and force seemingly reserved. Shows wonderful expression. Drink now through 2037.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese (AP 13 17) is clear, fresh and vegetal/floral on the pretty complex but clear and refreshingly flinty nose. Bottled with 8.5% alcohol, this is a lush, piquant and well-structured Spätlese with good grip and a perceptible sweetness. The finish is intense and complex and reveals a firm mineral structure.
JD 94
Jeb Dunnuck
Another brilliant value is the 2016 Riesling Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese, a dessert-styled effort that has a monster bouquet of sugared lime, mint, and citrus, with a sweet grapefruit-like note developing with time in the glass. Possessing balancing minerality and acidity, beautiful purity, and a layered, incredibly impressive texture, it’s another gem of a wine to seek out.

For centuries the Prüm family has called the village of Wehlen home. The 33.5 acre estate consists of nearly 70% ungrafted vines. Holdings are in the best parts of the top Middle-Mosel sites: Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Graacher Domprobst, Bernkasteler Lay, Bernkasteler Badstube, and Bernkasteler Bratenhöfchen. Average annual production is 13,000 cases. The harvest at J.J. Prüm is always extremely late, and the wines are very long-lived.
