S.A. Prum Riesling Auslese Wehlener Sonnenuhr 2006

S.A. Prum Riesling Auslese Wehlener Sonnenuhr 750ml 2006   
Sku: 1516661*

This estate-bottled, single-vineyard Riesling is produced from grapes grown in the famed gray slate soil of the renowned Wehlener Sonnenuhr which has recently been designated an Erste Lage – or top vineyard site by the VDP. The gray slate soils of the Sonnenuhr (sundial) vineyard have a high tin content which lends minerality to the wines. Ancestor Jodocus Prum erected the famous sundial in 1842, which became a hallmark for the mid-Mosel area. The soil of this famous domain is comprised of Devonian gray slate, and soft slate with a high tin content, which adds a distinctive, fresh minerality to the wines. This is the best vineyard in the Mosel River, with a southerly aspect. The altitude is between 425-1100 feet, with a steep 60% slope. The mountains’ treeline, rising above the vineyards, blocks cold winds from entering the valley.

Wine maker notes
Individually selected late harvest berries, some botrytis-touched, are hand-harvested in October. Following a period of maceration on the skins and five weeks of fermentation, the wine was aged for six months in stainless steel. The wine was then bottled under natural cork.

Technical notes
8.5% abv

Food pairing
Outstanding as an aperitif or matched with pates, cheeses, roast turkey, duck breast and Asian cuisine.
