2019 Bernkasteler Badstube Kabinett [07 20] (PRUM08219A)
Ripe and bright, with pithy lemon peel and pear fruit, and a smooth broad slaty finish.
2019 Bernkasteler Badstube Spätlese [10 20] (PRUM16219A)
Richer soils with a higher proportion of clay give a silky, delicate wine with clear pink grapefruit, cool broad mineral flavours and a soft, rich finish. It will be approachable young, and open out into glorious middle age.
2019 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Spätlese [11 20] (PRUM18219A)
The Zeltinger wines from Prüm are a little broader than their brothers in next-door Wehlen. This is juicy, bright and very stony, with delicate ripe citrus fruit, the mineral power tempered by persistent scented flavours tapering to a smooth, almost creamy salty finish.
2019 Graacher Himmelreich Spätlese [12 20] (PRUM20219A)
Now we're talking: a delightful, zingy wine with a hint of green, spicy generous fruit, pretty floral notes and a long, smooth elegant smoky finish.
2019 Bernkasteler Lay Auslese [15 20] (PRUM27219A)
There hasn't been a 'regular' Lay Auslese since 1998, which was gloriously balanced and seductive. This one is even better, and promises a great future. It is perfumed and bright, with rounded peach and citrus fruit and a generous soft broad slaty finish.
2019 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Auslese [14 20] (PRUM28219A)
Smoky slaty flavours are joined by generous white peach and pear fruit, and there is a delightful lemony briskness to keep it pure and fresh. Quite lovely.
2019 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese [16 20] (PRUM30219B)
A lot going on here: a wealth of beautifully floral, soft and juicy fruit, spice, and a persistent ripe zingy acidity is counterbalanced by powerful elegant pithy salty mineral flavours. Thereâ€™s a relaxed, effortless charm here, like a cheerful and interesting friend youâ€™d like to see more of.
2019 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese [17 20] (PRUM32219B)
The generous juicy white peach fruit is lent precision by vibrant lemony acidity, and there is a depth that heralds a very long future. The mineral structure is fine and lean: it compresses the fruit and elongates the wine to an astonishing length. But there is no austerity; the wine remains supple and elegant, melting and pure, throughout.
2019 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Auslese Goldkapsel [18 20] (PRUM36219A)
The first proper botrytis in the line-up, and what a joy it is: discreet and pure, it does not dominate, but adds a fine complexity to the rich vibrant fruit. This is a deep, dense wine with lots of energy and a ripe pithy and creamy dark slaty finish.
2019 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese Goldkapsel [19 20] (PRUM38219C)
More botrytis in evidence here, lending intensity, richness and elegance to the pure peach and yellow orchard fruit. The acidity is brisk and lemony, and there is a powerful long broad spicy slaty finish with a distinct saline note.
2019 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese Goldkapsel [20 20] (PRUM40219A)
Cor blimey - almost painful intensity and power here. The botrytis gives creamy richness but the terroir shines through with ringing clarity; the minerality is silky and saline, the acidity ripe and juicy, and the fruit a delightful cornucopia of orchard fruit shading gradually to the tropical. It is a brilliantly fine and elegant wine that will outlast us all.
