The 2018 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese (Gold Capsule) is very clear, intense and concentrated on the precise and succulent nose that reveals clear and super precise stone fruit intermixed with chervil, tea and very fine slate aromas. Round and highly finessed on the palate, this is a sweet but very subtle, finessed and salty WSU with a piquant and highly stimulating finish. Fabulous. 375-milliliter bottles. Tasted at the domain in September 2020. Drink: 2020-2070

97 points | Stephan Reinhardt,

All of the vineyards of J.J. Prüm are renowned yet it is the great Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard that is the most famous. This site lies opposite the village of Wehlen on a very steep, south-west facing slope between the Graach and Zeltingen vineyards. Stuart Pigott notes; “For wine lovers around the world the Wehlener Sonnenuhr name is synonymous with great Riesling. In top vintages the site yields the richest, silkiest, most seductive wines on the Mosel. The fame of these Rieslings is inextricably linked with that of the Joh Jos Prüm estate.”
