Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel Joh Jos Prum 2009
Very pale yellow gold in colour, this is inviting from the outset with an outstanding, delectable nose which combines orchard fruits of such sweetness that it is reminiscent of Tarte Tatin with hints of tangerine zest and complementary nuts and cream all punctuated by fine crushed minerals. Once again with Sonnenuhr, one can almost sense the sunshine in the glass so opulent is the wine and yet so disciplined, self-controlled, stylish and elegant. The minerality and fresh acidity which underscore the nose and palate are so beautifully integrated that the combination is orchestral, developing to a crescendo of aromatics which is almost painful in its heightened precision. This is a staggeringly lovely wine which is surprisingly approachable in this its infancy but will develop and enrich further given some bottle age.
