2016 J J Prüm, Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese
In the Mosel where the delights of fruity sweet riesling still reign supreme, 2016’s low botrytis levels meant little Beerenauslese could be made. This resulted in much fruit being declassified down the hierarchy.
Fear not, JJ Prüm’s Spätlese as ever, is a joy. Generous with apricot and peach fruit, ginger and baked lemon, towed by a nervy acidy line, this is superb drinking as it opens up in the glass.
