Product Description

"Broader shoulders here with a nose suggesting sticky, ripe peach with ripe apricot and nectarine as well. The tightly-wound palate continues the orchard-fruit theme yet such is the savoury complexity and intense lightness, sweetness seems to play an understated, supporting role. An anthem to this amazing vineyard and this amazing grower.
Pale golden yellow. Apricot, quince and persimmon dominate the bouquet, along with a hint of honeyed botrytis. Smoky wet-stone minerality keeps the sweet, ripe peach fruit in check. This rich, deep auslese is both sweet and a touch austere on the understated finish."
92 Points Wine Cellar

"Plush, lively and lusciously creamy, with plenty of snap to the ripe peach, white cherry and ruby grapefruit flavors. This shows plenty of refinement, offering hints of white chocolate and sage honey. Drink now through 2035."
94 Points Wine Spectator

"A delightful hint of salted caramel creeps into the nose and onto the palate of Prum's 2011 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese gold capsule, which when combined with apple jelly, honey and nougat not to mention a creamy and almost taffy-like texture, makes for a decidedly confectionary aura. Sweet liquid essences of lily, musky peony and gardenia as well as a faint oiliness and high glycerol enhance the luxuriantly seductive effect of this long-lingering performance, yet there remains a critical modicum of fresh apple and melon juiciness (if less efficacious than that of the corresponding Bernkasteler) to complement the sense of levity in this elixir's finish and to render the next sip virtually irresistible. (There will be an auctioned counterpart to this bottling, but like a number of other eventual upper-Pradikat Prum 2011s, I have not yet had an opportunity to taste it.)"
