Riesling Spatlese Wehlener Sonnenuhr JJ Prum 2017 (750ML)
95 Points, Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese is impressively deep, dense and expressive on the nose that is more mineral rather than fruity. On the palate, this is a lush, tensioned, very precise, elegant, sharply defined and complex Riesling. It's not as exuberant as the Sonnenuhr can be, but it represents more of the gray/blue slate soil. The finish is really lush, perfectly concentrated and salty. This is a great Prüm icon Spätlese. Tasted in March 2019." 6/19
95 Points, Wine Spectator: [Highly Recommended] "Guava and mango flavors are offset by vivifying citrusy acidity, creating a firm frame on which glazed apricot and star anise notes emerge. Powerful yet elegant, this is built for the cellar. Give this some air if you must drink it now, but better to wait for a decade or so. Best from 2022 through 2039. 170 cases made." 5/19
95 Points, John Gilman, View from the Cellar: "The 2017 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese AP #10 (I assume there is also an auction bottling of this wine in the cellars) is going to be a brilliant wine, but as is customary here, the wine is still quite youthful and structured out of the blocks. The beautiful nose offers up a glimpse of the magic to come, wafting from the glass in a blend of golden delicious apple, pear, a complex base of slate, a hint of vanilla bean, apple blossoms, gentle smokiness and an exotic and discreet topnote of fresh nutmeg. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish, primary and a quintessential expression of this great terroir, with a lovely core and mineral signature, bright, snappy acids and laser-like focus on the long, pure and very promising finish. A great wine in the making, but it will demand a bit of patience! (Drink between 2032-2085)" 4/19
