  • TASTING NOTE: “Smoke, funk and flint cloud the nose of the 2021 Riesling Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Auslese. Underneath, there is a touch of shy fruit which becomes wonderfully clear on the palate: tart Mirabelle jelly, with an urgent, pervasive, delicious freshness heightening the balanced sweetness even more. A yeasty texture adds an extra dimension but it is the fine, bright acidity absolutely guiding this wine. Totally mouth-watering.” 94 Points - Anne Krebiehl MW, Vinous
  • ABOUT THE WINE: The Zeltinger Sonnenuhr vineyard is the most northerly site of the estate and directly borders the northern edge of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr. Both sites are named after the sundials (Sonnenuhr) that sit amongst the vines and that are clearly visible from the other side of the river. The Zeltinger Sonnenuhr has a similar sun exposition and steepness to its neighbour, but there is less top soil (if we can use such a term in the Mosel) and the roots hit on the firm slate rock almost immediately. This means the vines have more trouble finding water which affects yields and the characteristics of the vines. Prüm’s parcel comes from a patch of 60-70 year old vines around the sundial. The wines can be very complex,with earthy, rocky and smokey notes. They can have a certain dense, less elegant personality (depending on the vintage) and their acidity often is lower. They perhaps do not achieve the same finesse as the wines from the Wehlener Sonnenuhr but they are probably more complex and can deliver wonderful, mouthfilling pleasure nonetheless. Auslese is the German term for select harvest, with selected bunches being hand picked when they are even more ripe than the grapes used for spätlese, and with some being affected by noble rot.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: The J.J. Prüm estate was founded in 1911 by Johann Josef Prüm. The 13.5 hectare estate includes some 70% of ungrafted vines - because the phylloxera louse cannot survive in the slate soils of the Mosel.  Dr Manfred Prüm has led the estate since 1969, with his daughter Katharina now running the winery. Unique amongst producers in the Mosel for it's style and quality, it is the great sites, old vines, the lowest yields, very late harvesting and selection of only the best berries that distinguishes the wines of J.J Prüm. In the winery the winemaking is as natural as possible with as little intervention as possible. The wines typically need several years to start showing their best and can live and develop for decades.
