Reviews for 2008 Joh Jos Prum Riesling Kabinett Wehlener Sonnenuhr

WS 92
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2010
Though elegant and filigreed this white is also fleshy and succulent as '08 kabinette go with peach slate and lime notes. A hint of fresh herbs adds depth and the finish is long and smoky. Best from 2012 through 2023.-BS

Succulent aromas of cherry apple blossom and sweet herbs. Firm apricot pit fruit but with a refreshing acid bounce framing the palate. The elegant finish features persistent slatey minerality.

The elegant finish features persistent slatey minerality. My candidate for the kabinett of the vintage.

Prum 2008 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett. There is a bit of a veil of CO2 yeast and sulfur shrouding the nose here â_" not at all uncommon in youthful Prum wines but little evidenced in this year's other Kabinett bottlings at the time I tasted them â_" however it detracts only slightly from the pleasure of the wine's aromatic complexity. The palate here suggests a near-weightless yet intense floral distillation underlain by vivid wet stone. A classic youthful example of Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett it will blossom short term as it emerges from its fermentative funk not to mention over the next 20-25 years though right now the corresponding Bernkasteler and Graacher are more refreshing and dynamic.
