2006 Studert Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Riesling, Auslese. Mosel, Germany
The 2006 vintage was very unique! This was the first vintage in many years that allowed grapes to develop Botrytis, or noble rot. This process is what creates the great wines of Sauternes, and it is no different here in the Mosel. Wines produced by this method are known as botrytized wines.
This wine had been in the cellar on the estate until very recently and is now in our climate-controlled cellar, and it will continue to age for the next several decades, although is is undeniably delicious now, especially served with a fine bleu cheese.
The 2006 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese shows considerable fermentative overlay from yeast, CO2 and sulfur, so that it took some patience to coax it out from under. Pear, quince, gardenia and honey inform a creamy palate and wafting finish. This lacks the energy of the Himmelreich at present, but its combination of richness with delicacy and the purity of its finishing expression of ennobled fruit speak to a fine future, perhaps three decades or more.
