Joh. Jos. Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett
Description: This estate has been under the direction of Manfred Prum (grandson of Joh. Jos. Prumís eponymous founder) since 1969, and scarcely needs much introduction to Riesling lovers, having already become a Mosel icon during the nearly five decades during which its namesakeís son Sebastien was in charge. Katharina Prum has been active alongside her father since early in the new millennium, and the two of them perpetuate a house style that has itself become a Mosel archetype: wines of delicacy and restrained sweetness, often strongly marked in youth by yeasty and otherwise fermentative aromas, and tingling with dissolved CO2. Their longevity is legendary, and the Prums personally donít care to drink their own wines - even the Kabinetts - with less than a dozen, and more usually many more, years in bottle. -David Schildknecht, Vinous
