The Prum 2008 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese - as with the corresponding Kabinett - is aromatically more marked by the residues of fermentation than are its immediate siblings. Hints of mango quince and musk added to the more predictable apple vanilla and liquid floral perfume and lend this an exotic touch while its mineral side is dominated by striking salinity that enhances the savory stimulation of a long finish as well as offering a fascinating foil to the wine's creaminess of texture and sheer ripeness. And while the nose needs to clear up here the palate displays a remarkable sense of clarity to a wealth of flowers and spices. The wine seems to coat the palate while hovering above it to seduce without touching. This should put on quite a show over the next 30 or more years.

Pungent aromas of slate violet and black currant are immediate and intense. The flavors show pure lime peach and mineral salt matched to a creamy texture and a vibrant structure. Fine length. Best from 2012 through 2027... Pungent aromas of slate violet and black currant are immediate and intense.

Fruit-driven aromas of white peach and apricot lifted by a floral element and a hint of spicy botrytis. The rich creamy sweet tropical fruits and bracing minerality provide an excellent framework on the palate. An auslese in its depth concentration and complexity this spatlese remains bright and vibrant on its long spicy finish. One of the stars of the vintage.
