Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett 2016
93 points, “The finishing sense of wet stone and floral perfume is striking, and here a mouth-watering hint of salinity adds significantly to the appeal.” - Vinous
With its proud sundial and epic location, Wehlener Sonnenuhr is a jewel in the Mosel’s crown. The Prüm family will always be tied to these vines, because Jodicus Prüm built the sundial to allow the workers and locals to better know the time. Joh. Jos Prüm, also known simply as JJ Prüm, own a small portion of the five hectares of old vines on this plot, so the wine is understandably scarce. The Kabinett 2016 displays opulent stone fruit – imagine apricots and peaches scattered with nuts, drizzled with honey and baked – combined with tropical fruit, honeysuckle, laser-like citrus and a flinty minerality reminiscent of licking salty pebbles on the beach. There’s a purity, freshness and butterfly-like delicacy to this vegan-friendly wine that makes it a true joy. Pair with fresh Vietnamese dishes, Thai salads, dumplings, citrus-doused tacos, pork with apple sauce, sausages and mash or nibbles before dinner.
Founded in 1911, JJ Prüm is arguably one of the most iconic German producers. The estate stretches for 33.5 hectares alongside the Mosel Valley and they’re renowned for their pure and exceptionally long-lived expression of Riesling.£5.07 per 100.00ml
