The 2020 Joh Jos Prum Riesling Spatlese Wehlener Sonnenuhr is an exquisite white wine from Germany's Mosel Saar Ruwer region. Crafted by the renowned producer Joh Jos Prum, this wine showcases the exceptional qualities of the Riesling varietal and the unique terroir of the Wehlen sub-appellation.

In the glass, this wine displays a pale straw color with a hint of green, reflecting its youthful nature. The aromatics are simply captivating, as the bouquet soars from the glass in a dazzling display. Notes of ripe pear and apple mingle with nuances of vanilla bean and white cherry. The presence of wild yeasts adds complexity, while a distinct mineral quality derived from the slate soil base shines through. Delicate floral tones of apple blossoms, violets, and iris blossoms dance in the upper register, adding a touch of elegance.

On the palate, the 2020 Joh Jos Prum Riesling Spatlese Wehlener Sonnenuhr reveals its fullish body and precise, tightly-knit structure. A beautiful girdle of acidity provides a refreshing lift, while fine filigree and grip add texture and depth. The laser-like focus leads to a very long and nascently complex finish, which is perfectly balanced. This wine is a true expression of its exceptional terroir and the skillful winemaking techniques employed by Joh Jos Prum.

Critics have been enraptured by the 2020 Joh Jos Prum Riesling Spatlese Wehlener Sonnenuhr.

James Suckling also awarded it 96 points, praising its delicate and precise nature, as well as its enormously long finish. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate gave it a score of 95+, noting its pure and flinty nose, elegant structure, and highly stimulating salinity.

The 2020 Joh Jos Prum Riesling Spatlese Wehlener Sonnenuhr is a wine that transports you to the picturesque Mosel Valley, offering a view from Cloud 9 and a sensory experience like no other.
