Vintages Wine Panel: The 2009 vintage is another in an impressive 10-year string of fine wines from Germany. Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard’s steep slopes of blue slate and thin topsoil produce some of the world’s best Rieslings, and this Kabinett is typical in its beautifully balanced fruit and minerality. On the nose, a tantalizing, light array of peach, apricot, dates, citrus, floral, and wisps of candied fruit and lime, are finely interwoven with slate. Lightly spritzy, with great focus, acidity, and ripe fruit on the palate, this off-dry charmer is an excellent value. My note: Such a pretty wine form such a consistently good producer. Peach, apricot and pear aromas dance and are kept in balance with a silver seam of mouth-watering acidity. Love it!

Reviews and Ratings

Adam Bekhor rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The 2009 Studert-Prüm Riesling Kabinett from Germany’s Mosel region is an off-dry wine with refreshing flavours of lemon, fresh lime, white peach, apricot with a sweet floral note that intertwines the fruit. The wine has incredible acidity that counter-balances the sweetness and makes it vibrant and thirst-quenching. With only 8.1% alcohol, the 2009 Studert-Prüm willl let you enjoy your afternoon without knocking you out for the count like so many other high alcohol wines might. This wine can age, but to get the most refreshing experience, drink it ASAP. Perhaps on your next sunny weekend afternoon.
