Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 93
"Pale yellow with green highlights. Enticing aromas of white cherry, yellow plum and toasted almond. Sweet, delicate and creamy on the palate, with sweet herbal essences and a tight, almost pungent acidity. Lemon curd and slate animate a compelling finish of outstanding length." -Vinous

Robert Parker

RP 93
"A 2005 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese imposingly concentrates aromas and flavors of flowers, nut oils, orchard and citrus fruits, and vanilla. Displaying the juxtaposition of creamy, imposingly oily texture with mouth-watering acidity that is a 2005 hallmark chez Joh. Jos. Prum, this Spatlese offers a depth, generosity, and diversity of fruits -- apple, peach, lemon, pineapple -- underlain by wet stone, nut oils, and vanilla, that present a compelling picture of a great site."

Wine Spectator

WS 95
"Aromas of lilac and hot slate after a rain segue into vivid peach and lime flavors. Has great definition and grace, with resonant energy and something in reserve. Lovely, silky texture. The fine, mineral aftertaste shows its ultimate potential."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 95
"Leesy and sulfury, this wine is fully possessed of the 'Prüm stink', yet equally obvious is its incredible intensity and depth. Waves of tropical fruit--think guava and pineapple--cascade over the palate, yet the sweetness is beautifully balanced by acidity. Tremendously concentrated and long on the finish, this should easily live 20 years or more."

German Wines

Is there a better grape than Riesling? Is there a better value? Its fruit purity, its perfume, and its mineral nuance are all unparalleled. And for centuries, the top German Rieslings were priced accordingly: at least as expensive as the top red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. But nowadays you could spend a lifetime exploring Germany’s great Riesling-producing regions while staying well within your budget. You might take an occasional break to try Germany’s other white grapes or perhaps a glass of Spätburgunder (the local name for Pinot Noir). It’s time to get started!
