Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett Joh Jos Prum 2016

This is late-picked, from the celebrated, supremely-sited “sundial” vineyard across the Mosel, facing the Prum house and cellars - the jewel within the family’s stunning 22 hectare holdings

"The name here refers to a sundial constructed by one Jodicus Prüm in the vineyard to allow people a better time orientation. There are 5 hectares of ancient, ungrafted vines here, which naturally produce very modest quantities. They are however further restricted. the better to translate both vintage and terroir. An Einzellage (single vineyard plot) Wehlener Sonnenuhr produces wines which have a marked personality. Discreet yet proud, opulent, with a terrific sabre of acidity, their fine minerality and mouth-watering citrus and stone fruit, all focus on pin-point accuracy. This 2016 vintage is ripe and full yet with a rather grown-up, taut nose. The palate is more gregarious with honeyed fruit, apricot and peach nuts and citrus zest. Poised and mineral, generous and long – wonderful balance"
