Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel Joh Jos Prum 1998 Halves

This vineyard site lies opposite the village of Wehlen on a very steep, south-west facing slope between the Graach and Zeltingen vineyards, directly opposite the Prum drawing room wherein we taste - a distraction were it not for the consummate quality of the wines. 1998 was a year of two halves yet despite a challenging late growing season, the wines are fabulous.

"The term Goldkapsel (gold capsule) is not officially recognised by German wine law but is used by certain estates to distinguish the highest quality wines. It is most often used for Auslese. These Goldkapsel wines are partially reliant on one of nature’s more mystical occurrences – botrytis – the noble version. This causes the grapes to intensify their concentration as the botrytis absorbs the water in the grape…resulting in intensely concentrated grapes , with high sugar levels AND good acidity. This offers glorious, honeyed fruit, marmalade notes and orchard fruit, refreshed by citric acidity and minerals - very fine"
