95 Joh. Jos. Prum, Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese

Petrol, tangerine rind, and bay leaf on the nose. High acid taste of tangerines and apricots with a long petrol finish. Supple body is abruptly cut short with the acidity, very light carbonation (bubbles cling to the bottom of the glass), and a tongue-cleaning dryness. The residuals are there, but this wine centers more on the classically vintaged riesling flavors (read: fruited gasoline) that still need time to come together. Balanced, honeyed citrus in its second day; markedly sweeter and fuller in body.
