Tasting note

2005 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese

Today’s dinner for my wife’s birthday at Web Christel in Westerland on the island of Sylt was a big delight, and this Riesling Spätlese was the perfect accompaniment for their superb fish and seafood dishes.

Since we enjoyed the wine at the restaurant, I did not take detailed notes. However, this J.J. Prüm was unquestionably a great pleasure. Already in the nose aromas of sweet apricots seduced us, well-staged by the Gabriel glass. In addition, a very light and pleasant touch of petroleum, as is usual for matured Riesling. It was all very harmonious. Finally, on the palate, the fruit sweetness combined with a still fresh acidity to tangerines, orange marmalade and apricots. Great, animating drinking flow. Long lasting finish that brought sweetness, acidity and bitterness together. Simply wonderful!

Drink through 2030.
