2006 J.J. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese

Wehlener Sonnenuhr is without doubt regarded as one of the best white vineyards in the world. And although many other well-known producers own land here as well, this site is intrinsically linked to the name Joh. Jos. Prum. This wine-grower dynasty can be traced back to the twelfth century.

Although an Auslese is recommended to be approached only after 8-10 years after the vintage, I just could not wait to check out how the wine is. Yellow lemon with green reflections, a very youthful color. There is incredible richness on the nose, with very strong aromas of petrol, warm rubber, pineapple, quince, yellow tropical fruits and Asian spices. Unctuous on the palate, with an oil like viscosity, with rich layers of flavors on the palate, delicate fruit and an outstanding balance between beguiling sweetness and intoxicating, mouth-watering acidity. The finish is long and goes on forever with lingering flavors of lemon confit and honey. With just feather-light alcohol- 8%, there is nothing else that one may claim from such an excellent white wine. Concentrated juice. (93-94/100)

This is a wine that can equally pair foie gras and very sweet desserts. It went extremely well with Christmas cake and other sweet home made cookies, being the highlight of a Christmas meal with family.
