Highly Rated German Riesling From Iconic Producer J J Prum

2009 J J Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese
$1 per Bottle Shipping on Six or More

One of the most, if not the most, famous producer in the Mosel region of Germany is Johann Josef Prum, more commonly known as J J Prum. The J J Prum estate has holdings in premier vineyard sites throughout the Mosel, but the vineyard of Sonnenuhr arguably is their best.

Sited just across the Mosel River from the town of Wehlen and named for the giant sundial that serves as the town clock of Wehlen, Sonnenuhr is situated, like the best vineyards in the Mosel, on steep hillsides with plenty of stone and slate surrounding the vines.

We just came across a nice offering on the 2009 J J Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese that received 96 points in the Wine Spectator. This is its highest score from the Wine Spectator since the 2005 vintage which ranked #14 in the their Top 100 list that year.

This is an intense German Riesling that will surely not disappoint if you drink it now but the 2009 J J Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese would be even better if you give it a few years to mature in the bottle. It should even last another 20 years!

Today's deal is $39.98 per bottle with $1 per bottle shipping on six or more!

Wine Spectator 96 Points

"Pure, precise and fresh-tasting, with an intense clarity to the apple, pear and tangerine flavors that feature notes of slate and vanilla. The crystalline finish is long, pure and precise, with hints of smoke and anise. Best from 2014 through 2040."-KM
