The Prum 2010 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese gold capsule A.P. #16 reveals at once implosive density as well as explosive cut and searing intensity such as I can’t recall from any other young Wehlener Auslese at this address. Yellow cherry and kirsch distillate; fresh lemon and apple are laced with piquant apple pip, walnut, vanilla, and lemon zest. Raw energy in its own way at least as elevated as in the corresponding Graacher is here allied to a greater diversity of flavor, including deep notes of caramel and nut oils that well up in a prodigious finish. The floral refinement and already-seductive caress of the corresponding Zeltinger is not what this wine’s about ... or at least, not for another couple of decades, which won’t put it even halfway through what I anticipate will be its total lifespan. Even so, its impossible not to be almost literally carried away by what’s here today. 

Katharina Prum says she and her father performed some de-acidification on their eventual generic Kabinett bottling as wine, but otherwise employed only sparingly light double-salt must de-acidification, insisting that late harvesting was the essential measure to be taken this year against high acidity. (And, as usual, most of the wines were bottled in high summer, relatively late when compared with those of nearly all their Middle Mosel neighbors.) It’s not so much that measurable acidity dropped significantly in the second half of October, opined Prum, but that the character of the acidity changed in immeasurable ways. Other than the aforementioned generic bottling, concentration was deemed simply too high this year for any of an already small crop to be rendered as Kabinett. And indeed, only the two most prominent sites were captured in Spatlese format; all else is Auslese and above. Prum notes that levels of residual sugar are seldom significantly higher this year than in other recent vintages, with the result that the wines generally tend to taste a bit drier. “Above and beyond” (as it were) those wines I report on (or whose existence I at least mention) below, there is material from Wehlener Sonnenuhr expected to inform long gold capsule Auslese, Beerenauslese, and Trockenbeerenauslese and be released in future years. (Veteran readers of my reports will know by now that while there are often multiple eponymous Prum bottlings, the family is loathe to disclose the A.P. #s of wines they serve in tastings, numbers that might be required to disambiguate between lots which they insist that there will only ever be very slight difference. In 2010, the crop is was so small that there are few alternate bottlings.)
