2021 2021 Joh. Jos. Prüm ‘Wehlener Sonnenuhr’ Auslese Riesling
Region: Mosel, Germany
As the Great Mace Said WELCOME BACK!
Climate change has not been kind to northerly European regions, changing the very nature of how these classic wines once tasted. The 2020's, although tasty, don't have the verve or energy of the 21's. The 21's tasting classic with acids that make you feel alive.
All the wines are 7.5% alcohol, balanced by residual sugar to perfection. The Auslese is killer. Some people think of Auslese as dessert wines, how wrong they are. These are gastronomic and outlandish wines. Age the best, always taste the best. Complex as. Again, will stay perfect open in the fridge for a couple of weeks so a perfect bad day livener. Who new fermented grapes could taste like this.
A legendary producer that have a storied history. It's young, for Germany, first producing wine in 1911. But bought some of the greatest steeped vineyards along the Mosel River. Dr. Katherina Prüm is now in charge and is the custodian of 13.5 Hectares of old vines.
