JJ Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese 2006 375ml
I enjoyed the wines of JJ Prum before I got to visit in 2008. But after that, it is love. So much so I stashed a lot of their wines away because they need a lot of time.
The sundial of Wehlen is the most famous vineyard in the village and possibly the whole Mosel. Known as being larger than average, the wines it produces can age gracefully. Like most of Wehlen look for power and intensity in the wines that sit over the acid.
Means selection. The winemakers are picking the bunches that will make the style of wine they want, these are some of the sweetest wines you find in Mosel. They can have no botrytis all the way up to full infection. Intense, dense and really need a good time to age. They can have nice mineral and savoury elements to balance the fruit and they should have sufficient acid to keep everything in check. They best can be endlessly layered, like wandering into a labyrinth the path will always be changing and evolving.
