    (Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese) A clear green-tinged hue, and just like the spätlese this shows a light application of carbon dioxide bubbles around the inner surface of the glass. Unfortunately it still reeks of typical Prüm sulphur at this stage, with struck match and mothball characteristics dominating at present. I described it as a ‘faint tinge’ in 2007 but perhaps I was being kind; it certainly isn’t faint here. There is still a bright, vivacious minerality underneath it though, along with little notes of seashell and seaside ‘ozone’. Lovely weight, although it feels light-footed and gentle and harmonious. Not intensely sweet, not overtly sweeter than the spätlese in fact, although there is a beautifully fleshy polish on the palate with a very harmonious structure. Lovely vibrancy on the finish, which is fresh and long. It still needs time, this one; and it will drink well for decades I am certain.

    (Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese) Baked lemon, petrol, herbal nose; nice, refined, minerally, petrol and tart stone fruit palate; medium-plus finish (best match with the soup)

    (Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese) A pale shimmering hue, green tinged, and like the wines that preceded it there are some bubbles of residual carbon dioxide lingering here. A super nose, with a deep, limey, minerally, smoky and fresh style. There is perhaps the faintest tinge of residual sulphur here too, but it is very subtle and is of no consequence. Gorgeously fresh despite being deeply structured, plush and rich, with a great, broad character. Creamy fruit richness, precisely defined, very upright and composed, but with plenty of fleshy substance, so although this wine is in a very early stage of what should be a lengthy evolution, it is still beautifully balanced and delightfully easy to drink. But no doubt in five, ten or twenty years time, protected by the crisp, tingling and perfectly delineated acidity that it possesses, it will be a fabulous experience. A wonderful wine with huge potential.
