2017 WEHLENER SONNENUHR Spätlese [10 18] (PRUM22217A)
As always, this is the finest and most effortlessly elegant of all the Prüm Spätlesen. It is particularly dense this year, and shows typical perfumed floral fruit and a persistent minerality on a long smoky finish.

2017 GRAACHER HIMMELREICH Auslese [12 18] (PRUM30217A)
An unusually high proportion of botrytis ' around 30% 'gives this a round smoothness, but the touch is so light that there is no loss of transparency. There is pithy citrus fruit, a hint of yellow plum and a long fresh smoky finish.
2017 WEHLENER SONNENUHR Auslese [13 18] (PRUM32217A)
Confession: during our tasting, I wrote: 'bright, vibrant and gorgeous' and then stopped, swept away by how delicious this wine tasted. Only years of experience and professional rigour forced me back to my notebook. So yes. It's full of energy, as well as smooth peachy fruit tinged with pithy citrus, floral flavours, an exceptionally finely woven minerality and a very long, balanced finish.
2016 WEHLENER SONNENUHR Auslese [13 17] (PRUM32216A)
All things to all men: delightful ease and charm, but also serious depth and complexity. There is white peach and hints of riper tropical fruit, vibrant citrus acidity and a hugely intense smoky minerality that keeps the wine focussed, pure, and tasting almost dry. It is effortless, ethereal, and while delicious now, will provide pleasure for many decades.

2017 GRAACHER HIMMELREICH Auslese Goldkapsel [15 18] (PRUM38217A)
The pure light botrytis gives a smooth character to this ripe and rounded wine. There is appealing golden-yellow fruit, and it is intense, balanced and poised, ending on a long, delightfully smoky mineral note.
2017 BERNKASTELER LAY Auslese Goldkapsel [16 18] (PRUM39217B)
Lay is a subplot of the larger Badstube vineyard above it, and in the past, wines from the two were often blended together. Since Katharina Prüm has taken over, the wines are bottled separately every year. They are individual in their own right: proximity to the water makes the vineyard warm (and ideal for botrytis), and some clay mixed with the slate protects from drought ' the latter a factor in 2017. This year the wine is dense yet smoothly textured, with ripe yellow fruit, bright citrus flavours, and a delicate pure minerality. The finish is dense and long.
2017 WEHLENER SONNENUHR Auslese Goldkapsel [17 18] (PRUM40217A)
It is rare to come across a wine that is both powerful and delicate, but here we are: a light blanket of pure botrytis concentrates the ripe yellow fruit, adding a touch of creamy richness. Underneath there are vibrant floral and intense mineral notes that combine with the zingy citrus acidity to balance the sweetness, making this a gorgeous, fresh and magical wine.
