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.
