The Prüm family has roots in Mosel region of Germany that date back as far as 1156, making it one the country’s preeminent winemaking dynasties. The current estate, now a century old and located in Wehlen in the heart of the Mosel, has been under the direction of Raimund Prum since 1971. Under his leadership, the property has become one of the region’s most successful wineries, boasting an international reputation for the production of exquisite Rieslings in a range of styles that satisfy and please every palate. Production Area This estate-bottled Riesling is made from a selection of grapes grown in and around Bernkastel in Germany’s middle Mosel region. This area is characterized by blue slate soil, rich in copper, which give the wines from this area more backbone, structure and distinct minerality. Grape Varieties 100% Riesling Vinification Grapes are picked by hand in mid-October and de-stemmed before undergoing 12 hours of maceration on the skins. The juice is fermented with native yeasts for eight weeks in stainless steel tanks, it is aged sur lie for richness and character and bottled under synthetic cork.

Prum Blue Riesling 2009 - 88 Points, Wine Spectator/ A broad white, on the dry side, with white pepper, nectarine, mandarin orange and slate flavors.
Prum Blue Riesling 2014 - 88 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ A streak of wax and honeycomb glazes through this otherwise brisk citrusy Riesling. Off-dry and concentrated in apples and tangerines, it finishes moderately long with lingering touches of tea leaf and honey. Drink now.
Prum Blue Riesling 2010 - 89 points, Wine Spectator/ This has a firm core of dried apple, white cherry and baked peach flavors that are smoky and rich. The racy, mouthwatering finish is marked by bright, spicy notes.
S.A. Prüm, Prüm Blue Riesling 2009 - 89 Pts - Wine Enthusiast/ Intentionally skewed toward the drier side of kabinett, this is an impressive effort from proprietor Raimund Prüm. It’s light in body, with fairly ripe fruit flavors of honeyed apple and a hint of apricot, yet intensely refreshing thanks to crisp acidity.
Blue Slate Riesling 2007 - Wine Enthusiast/ On the dry side for a kabinett, with the alcohol weighing in at 11%. Yet even though the alcohol is relatively high, the wine gives an impression of lightness, balancing melon and white peach flavors with touches of spice and minerality.
