Wehlener Sonnenuhr Beerenauslese 24-18, Weingut Joh. Jos. Prum 1999

Tasting Notes

The 1999er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Beerenauslese lange GK w as bottled in the years af ter the vintage and only declared recently, hence the AP number f rom 2018. This offers a stunningly complex and ref ined nose of yellow flowers, almond paste, apricot, date, honey, herbs, and smoky elements. The w ine is breathtakingly filigreed on the palate, where more ripe fruity f lavors mingle w ith almond and marzipan. Despite its oily and
slightly viscous structure, it proves exquisitely airy in the f inish and leaves one with a gorgeously honeyed after -taste. The delicacy and intensity are truly remarkable. Despite being already almost 20 years old, this remarkably vital and youthful BA still needs another couple of years (if not a full decade) to unfold its full glorious complexity as the w ine is still developing positively in the glass. Expect no less than perfection at maturity! 2024-2069
