German Wine from a distinguished private collection

Share

This collection was very much focused on Riesling. Last year we sold quite a lot of their wine; today's offer are the wines that the owner had decided to reserve for themselves. Sometime - as soon as is possible - they are moving to live permanently in France (closer to the source of most Riesling!), and they've decided not to move any wine.

NB: Some labels were stained when there was an accident in the cellar - we've tried to note this where it's applicable.

Prüm, J.J. 1971 Mosel Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Goldkap Auslese

The use of 'gold capsules' for J.J. Prum came as a response to when winemakers could no longer officially classify their Auslesen as one of four levels of 'quality'. In 1971 the law came down that estates could only use 'Auslese' on the label, and this was far too vague for some! Gold capsules became (for Prum) a way to further classify their Auslese bottlings: regular gold capsule would designate botrytis, and the long gold capsule would hint that this was an even more concentrated, higher-botrytis bottling. Being able to find such high-quality, botrytis-affected grapes would require more work, and smaller yields, so the longer the gold capsule, the more rare the wine usually was. However, this is specific to J.J. Prum, and was not a standard practice for all estates looking for further differentiate their special bottles. Cari Bernard
