Apples, pears, lime, and florals on the nose. Lime and minerals on the palate, with an exotic floral element. Restrained, though very complex and interesting if one is willing to look. The sweetness is there, but very well integrated. The acid is huge. This was not the best bottle I've had, and yet it is still singing.
Wild flowers, citrus fruit and stoney minerality drive the nose and palate. Bright acidity is channeled into the middle and balanced perfectly against the weight of the body and maintaining a lightness/ elegance on the palate and (long) finish. Initially, some reductive notes were present on the nose and entry but these subsided with air to reveal a more striking stoney, introduction.
Very little to add to my previous notes on this. This wine is absolutely stunning, and drinking superbly right now. Amazing intensity of flavour, with an array of orchard fruits, floral notes, sulfury funk, and a vivid slate/stone mineral character that cling to the palate, and a remarkable sense of lightness that's hard to put into words. So focused, elegant, and long. Spectacular.

(J.J. Prüm Riesling Spätlese Wehlener Sonnenuhr) Aromas of green herbs, mint, bright green apple, and fruit blossoms; pure apple on the palate. It’s brighter, fresher, and leaner that what I would expect from a Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese, but pretty and wonderfully balanced. Katharina Prüm commented that the Sonnenuhr wines from the ’90s were even lighter and drier than they are today. Terroir: Wehlener Sonnenuhr
(Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese) Again, sulphur evident on the nose, although with plenty of bright and acidic fruit beneath. It is delicate, clean, minerally and has tingly acids. Then it seems softer, more gentle, not so much substance, with lots of bright character. Good potential.
