    December 29, 2021 - Sweet fruit, citrus, honey, and petrol in the nose. Good acidity with more sweet fruit, peach, and melon. There’s quite a bit of effervescence as well. Nice finish

    October 22, 2021 - Wehlener is always so good. Trippy how this wine showed a clearly light yellow compared to the two deep yellow Graachers. This was the most complete of the '03. The most balanced and probably my favorite for drinking right now. Terrific cut and energy. Minerality. Less overt '03 richness. Still unfolding. .Good wine.

    October 7, 2021 - This was my fourth and last bottle of this wine. My previous bottles led me to believe that this wine was reflective of the vintage character with ripe, rich and soft fruit. This bottle showed me that maybe I was just drinking this wine too young. This was a beautiful bottle that after being open for 2 hours really shined. Notes of piquant apples and juicy white nectarines fill your senses as you navigate this beautiful and delicious wine from the great JJ Prum. The palate shows the signature interplay between ripe fruit and filigreed delicacy that make these wines so special.
    We actually started the night with this wine and then came back to it after a bottle of red. When we revisited this bottle, it was clear that all it really needed was some air to bring it fully to life. Beautiful wine from a first class producer.

    September 18, 2021 - Upon opening yesterday (out of Riedel vinum riesling/sangiovese glasses) it showed petrol, toffee and licorice, while it was seamlessly smooth in the mouth. Today, it is more like rich coconut, and still seamlessly smooth, with low acidity. Atypical and wonderful in its own way.

    May 8, 2021 - Stunningly fresh considered the vintage reputation. Served blind to my friends. Some of them guessed Mosel 2018 from a top producer. And that sums it up pretty well.

    (J.J. Prum Wehlener Sonnenhur Auslese) Too rich for my blood with not enough acidity. Apple, slate, tremendous ripeness and tons of botrytis. Needs either 30 years as they say over in Germany or will fade very quickly.
