The 2018 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett offers a deep and flinty, stony and herbal bouquet that needs some time to open up. Remarkably deep and complex, round and textured on the palate, this is a charming, mouth-filling and intense WSU with serious grip and length. Still far from being evolved, this is a richer, more complex Kabinett that will start to impress in 5-10 years. Stimulatingly salty on the finish. Tasted at the domain in September 2020. Drink Date: 2025-2050.

Light-footed and lean, this zesty off-dry Riesling is enticingly smoky and earthen on the nose, but the palate reverberates with juicy pineapple, mango and lemon flavors. It's a juicy, intensely fruity sip but still tightly wound in its youth. While hard to resist already, it's a bottle that will gain depth well through 2030.

Heady scents of honeysuckle and heliotrope mingle with apple, quince and Persian melon. Succulent fruitiness and wafting perfume are complemented by a creamy feel on the delicate palate. Subtle nuttiness and discreet fruit seed piquancy serve for stimulating counterpoint, leading into a lusciously lingering, slate-lined finish. The exuberantly juicy, vibrant, bell-clear finish offers a lightly shimmering suggestion of fruit/stone interplay. At any given Prädikat level, the Prüms' offering from the Wehlener Sonnenuhr - while in the long run often "best of show" - can frequently prove less expressive in its first year, but such is definitely not the case here! Drinking window: 2019-2040.

Floral and wet stone aromas give way to nectarine, passion fruit and lime flavors in this delicate and silky, yet slightly restrained, Riesling. Shows harmony and integration, with spice and mint notes lingering in the background. Features a bright structure and maintains focus on the long, mineral-tinged finish. Best from 2022 through 2035. 200 cases imported.
