J.J. Prüm Kabinett Bernkasteler 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Refreshing and bright with floral aromas of peach and acacia. This is an elegantly balanced Riesling with an appealing finish.Joh. Jos. Prum's holdings are considered the preeminent in all of the Mosel, and the wines often *set the benchmark for each vintage of German Riesling*. They show a unique interplay between fruitiness, minerality and acidity and are rather low in alcohol. J.J.Prum's wines are famous for their ageability, long lasting youth and freshness, and their expressive, complex character and clarity

J.J. Prüm is a member of the Großer Ring Verband Deutscher Prädikats- und Qualitätsweingüter. The estate has 14 acres of holdings in the Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Bernkasteler Lay, Bernkasteler Badstube and Zeltinger Sonnenuhr vineyards. Only Riesling is grown and harvested at these sites. The most important of these sites are Wehlener Sonnenuhr and Graacher Himmelreich, in terms of both quantity and quality for the winery. Seventy percent of the vines are ungrafted. Depending on the vintage, the average annual production is 10,000 to 13,000 cases of wine. Stuart Pigott says of J.J. Prum that "since the early 1920's its wines have been among Germany’s best Rieslings with the Mosel’s vivacious aroma and racy elegance in its highest form". Wine writer Stephen Brook says that "The wines, whether a modest Kabinett or an opulent Beerenauslese, are the epitome of filigree elegance: light in body but intense in flavour, exquisitely balanced and precisely tuned, and capable of the most extra-ordinary longevity".  Read less

Woof! Beautiful and interesting aroma of wet dog fur and shoe leather. Tastes similar plus also yields a burst of tart-sweet fruit. Hints of guava, passionfruit. Lovely clean finish.

Tried this again, different tasting, deduced a nose of rubber, hint of white flowers, and an aged poultry smell. Similar taste plus a rush of tropical fruit (guava, passionfruit) and a hint of citrus, Mild acid and medium to light body.

A wine with a long life ahead of it from an excellent vineyard, producer, and vintage. This extremely famous estate comprises 33 acres of mostly ungrafted vines. They harvest very late, a risky practice but one that can have fabulous results.

The J.J.Prum Estate Riesling Kabinett shows especially floral and herbal aromas. A very enjoyable wine just now with good aging potential. Pairings: Serve this refreshing wine slightly chilled! As aperitif or in combination with seafood or poultry.
