Some of Prüm's releases in this decade have been more fruit-forward and less overtly yeasty than in the past, but this wine feels like a Prüm Spätlese of old: Tightly restrained and stubbornly closed behind a wall of youthful fermentation aromas, it takes its time to reveal subtle detail and silky depth of fruit. It's infused by the haunting blue-slate character for which the vineyard is renowned, and while it undoubtedly packs more richness and ripeness than a Prüm wine of 20 years ago, it maintains a similar feeling of delicacy, purity and grace.

The Prum 2007 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese is intriguingly- as well as gorgeously-scented with peony narcissus heliotrope mint and fresh apple. Creamy and buoyant on the palate it caresses and seduces with suggestions of lemon chiffon and vanilla flan but then leaves a surprisingly adamant stony subtly zesty finish as if to put the taster on notice that there is a lot more here than meets the palate at such a youthful juncture. -David Schildknecht

Shows some characteristic Prüm stinky notes but there's plenty of fruit lurking underneath. Pear honey melon and citrus flavors give an impression of great ripeness amplified by the creamy texture and custardy mouthfeel... Shows some characteristic Prüm stinky notes but there's plenty of fruit lurking underneath. Pear honey melon and citrus flavors give an impression of great ripeness amplified by the creamy texture and custardy mouthfeel but there's also enough crisp acidity for balance. Drink now-2025 maybe longer. J.C.

A fragrant nose of white floral and ripe stone fruit with a touch of anise. This has a beautifully creamy texture. Ripe and forward with nectarine yellow peach and a touch of anise and mint for a long fruit laden finish.
