Ratings and Tasting Notes:
RP93 A glorious sense of liquid floral perfume – suggesting honeysuckle, heliotrope, and apple blossom – pervades the Prum 2011 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese, dovetailing deftly with quince preserves and Normandy cider on a subtly creamy, almost weightlessly buoyant, and infectiously juicy palate. This ultra-polished and impeccably balanced performance linger ravishingly with a strong sense of underlying wet stone and nut oils added to its pure expression of fruit and liquid perfume. Yes, it’s quite rounded-off in the overall impression and, in contrast with most of the wines in this year’s Prum collection, obviously sweet. But there is potential for three decades of titillation and satisfaction.
WS93 Vibrant, with concentrated sweet basil and thyme accents to the quince, mango, and tarte Tatin flavors. Very crunchy and bright at midpalate, showing notes of honey cream, spice, and mineral that mingle effortlessly. Drink now through 2030. 300 cases made.
AG90 Attractive floral, apple, and hazelnut aromas. The creamy texture of apricot fruit is paired with saline acidity. Well balanced but still somewhat withdrawn. The aristocratic finish displays appealing length.
