Germany and Austria

2016 Joh Jos Prüm Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese

This is Riesling's mother ship, the many valleys of Germany and Austria. It offers a unique blend of elements, that of Riesling's fruitiness, acidity, and minerality that simply cannot be matched outside of these Germanic lands. No one can resist the pure and brilliant charm of Riesling, dry or sweet!!! Austria's Gruner Veltliner offers a peacock's tail of floral aromas on a refreshing frame of acidity.

Price: $36.00

The smallest production of their Späts is always the Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, from very well placed and very old vines adjacent to the sundial itself. "Another register of aromatic complexity here, with very good, dancing mineral/cool stone fruit/white floral interplay. All about finesse, and just plain lovely....WOW." When I circled back to taste this a second time, it was absolutely stunning, its mineral component even more pronounced, and the overall complexity even more compelling. This is an absolute knockout. A little * awarded here.
