S.A. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett Riesling 2004
This estate-bottled, single-vineyard Riesling is produced from grapes grown in the famed Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard in Germany's Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region.
Select grapes were hand-harvested in late October and, following de-stemming and six hours of skin contact, fermented for nine weeks in stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine was bottled under natural cork
Fresh and pleasantly fruity
Flavors of lemon and peach against a mineral backdrop
Well-matched with salads, seafood and light veal dishes
Today, the estate comprises 40 acres of vineyards planted principally with Riesling. Over 15 acres of S.A. Prüm's holdings are located within the famed Wehlener Sonnenuhr ("sundial of Wehlen") domain. Named for the historic and well-recognized sundial painted on an outcrop of slate by a Prüm ancestor back in 1842, the incredibly steep Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard is a globally renowned source of what is arguably Germany's finest Riesling. As the name suggests, Wehlener Sonnenuhr, where vines average 80 years and older, benefits from plentiful sunshine – a critical factor in the world's northernmost wine producing country. The soil is comprised of layers of finely decomposed, mineral-rich blue slate that date back approximately 400 million years. Underneath, deep-lying aquifers provide the vines with adequate water during dry periods.
