2018 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese [08 19] (PRUM22218A)
As always, this is the finest and most effortlessly elegant of all the Prüm Spätlesen. The scented golden-yellow fruit is tightly wound, itching to unfurl but kept in check by powerful, linear slaty notes that develop smoky spicy flavours as the wine glides to a long, saline finish. An absolute cracker.
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.
2016 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese [12 17] (PRUM22216A)
Charm itself: transparent, pure and effortless, each element stands out clearly and combines in a harmonious whole. It is perfumed, floral and playful, with a zinging creamy minerality that makes it taste almost dry. Quite lovely.Charm itself: transparent, pure and effortless, each element stands out clearly and combines in a harmonious whole. It lovely. dry.

2015 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese [31 16] (PRUM22215A)
As pure as it gets: each element transparent and in effortless harmony. There is cool pear, some passion fruit, floral notes, ripe citrus acidity and a fine delightfully playful minerality that comes to the fore on a long, salty finish.
2014 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese [09 15] (PRUM22214A)
The most backward, but the finest and most complex in the Spätlese line-up. Sweet floral and lemon flavours dominate at first, joined and gradually superseded by elegant salty slate notes. A breath-taking, poised wine that manages to balance elegance and power. It demands attention and gets it. Drink 2025-2040.
2012 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese [17 13] (PRUM22212A)
No point in mincing words: the wine of the vintage. Vibrant floral and pithy minerals on the nose, followed by pure, generous peach fruit that melts in the mouth, complemented by taut mineral flavours gliding across the palate. Great finesse, energy and intensity. An almost ethereal experience.
2018 Bernkasteler Badstube Auslese [09 19] (PRUM26218A)
Generous juicy yellow plum fruit is balanced by stony mineral flavours, and fresh green herbal notes creep in on the nicely balanced long salty finish.
2018 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Auslese [10 19] (PRUM28218A)
Structured, angular and slightly austere smoky slaty flavours are almost, but not quite, overwhelmed by a torrent of fresh yellow fruit that shades to the tropical on the long finish.
2018 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese [11 19] (PRUM30218A)
Gorgeous, zingy and elegant soft yellow fruit is balanced by melting fine earthy mineral flavours. There is beautiful tension here: you can sense the pressure of fruit pushing against the confines of the mineral walls, promising a long and glorious future.
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.
2016 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese [09 17] (PRUM30216B)
Magical poise and bags of energy on this vibrant, dense and elegant wine. There is ripe pure yellow plum and pithy grapefruit, lemon-tinged acidity and a smoky melting minerality on a long, powerful finish.
2015 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese [16 16] (PRUM30215A)
A dash of botrytis adds a creamy note to the ripe fruit, a mixture of pear, peach and greengage. But there is not a trace of surplus weight: the vibrant acidity and rich, slightly smoky minerality lift the fruit flavours into perfect balance. This is poised, elegant and complex.
2012 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese [15 13] (PRUM30212A)
Fizzing with energy, showing delightful lemony fruit and fine, elegant mineral flavours. Fresh, pure and vibrant, with a complex bittersweet finish. Absolutely lovely.
2018 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese [12 19] (PRUM32218A)
What so many growers are going for, but don't achieve: as close to effortless as you can get. There is enormous energy, a steely core of smoky slate, loads of sweet ripe yellow fruit, ripe lemony acidity and a melting, long rich finish. It will last longest of all the Prüm
