    (J.J. Prüm Riesling Spätlese Wehlener Sonnenuhr) Aromas of smoke and gunflint, grilled apples, and wonderfully integrated minerality. Piercing green-apple flavors, followed by some white peach and even lime. This wine has richness, but is remarkably linear, with pretty, balanced acidity. I asked Katharina Prüm if she thought “smoke” was a good descriptor for the aroma of slate, but she replied that a smoky character was more likely the result of a warmer vintage.

    (JJ Prum W-S Spatlese) 2007 JJ Prum

    Dear Friends,

    Based on the order requests for the 2007 JJ Prum W-S Kabinett, I'm almost hesitant to put this out - it's the flagship of the winery and (in my opinion) the finest non-GK wine JJ Prum has produced since the 2001. There are bizarre levels of allocation pressure with Prum's 2007 portfolio and the emerging markets of China (Hong Kong) and Russia have left the US firmly in the background - when someone is willing to pay anything for your wine, it's tough to ignore them. With that in mind, there are very few cases of 2007 Prum W-S Spatlese this year so please be patient with Niki - she will do her best to allocate fairly.

    The 2007 W-S Spatlese pretty much sums up the vintage - it is tactile, stone-filled and piquant with near-perfect levels of buffering, clean, terroir specific extract that leave vintages such as 2003, 2005 and 2006 firmly in the rearview mirror. An effort that should repay the patient in a similar way to 1975.

    Thank you,
