A rich anise and glazed apricot strain runs through the aroma to the finish. Distinctive and powerful. Drink now through 2025. -KM

The 2009 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese from the Prüm family was showing just brilliantly at the time of my visit to the estate in mid-March of this year, soaring from the glass in a glorious constellation of pear, golden delicious apple, petrol, a lovely base of slate, wild yeasts, vanilla bean and a potpourri of spring flowers. On the palate the wine is medium-full, pure and filigreed, with a lovely core, very good acids and fine length and grip on the focused and beautifully complex finish. This is very approachable today, but I would still want to tuck it away in the cellar for several more years and let its secondary layers of complexity emerge. 2022-2050+.

An almost confectionary sense of sweetness and ripeness pervades the Prum 2009 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese making it something of an exception in a vintage collection generally noteworthy for the restraint of residual sugar. Apple candy caramel and vanilla mingle on a creamy palate with hints of salt stone and apple pit happily offering some counterpoint in a long and otherwise soothing finish. This showed more grip as it opened and perhaps time will lend more cut and complexity to a Spatlese that on the basis of track record is likely to thrive for another quarter century or more. Incidentally this represents the first of three lots of "regular" Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese the last of which was still in tank in September.-David Schildknecht
