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

Big petrol and rubber nose with smoky notes. Rich and honied with a touch of botrytis and an almost syrupy character that keeps the wine simple though with just enough acidity to keep it drinkable. Too young for this one. Wait 3 years.

Baked apple with a hint of peach and apricot on the nose. Well balanced with decent acidity. Had it with a Ceasar salad and it actually paired pretty well. I ordered another bottle for the wine cellar.

highly aromatic, cantaloupe, apricots with a viscous palate of rich fruit flavors combined with little nuances of slate

Brilliant minerality on the nose, almost a bit of sea air. Crisp acidity perfectly balanced with the residual sugar. Silky smooth on the palette with that minerality, floral notes, and a touch of apricot. Light and refreshing.

Pure and delicate, yet strong mineral and florals on the nose. Showing nice apple and peach notes and good mineral mixed in. Delicious and well balanced. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 4/10/10

Excellent structure, ripe aromas and flavors of stone fruits (like peach), a fine minerality, great depth and length. Unique harmony, finesse and expression after aging. Fine, yet racy with elegance and complexity. Beautiful balance between fine minerality, crisp acidity, expressive fruit aromas and flavors.

Subtle floral bouquet with peach skin and acacia blossom. Bright, slightly tart apple with a refreshing, persistent acidity. This invigorating wine has an appealing finish.

Perhaps the most celebrated producer in Germany's esteemed Mosel Valley, Johann Joseph Prum produces outstanding single vineyard Rieslings critics praise and collectors can't get enough of. This wine from the famed Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard is a Spatelese which transltes to "Late Picked". This means the grapes had a chance to fully ripen and take on a rich complexity. The wine is mildly sweet and laden with minerality. The Wine Advocate scored this 94 points and said "The 2012 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese is more cool and mineral/stony on the nose than the Himmelreich Spätlese, but also intensely fruity at the moment, offering ripe peach, mango and pineapple aromas and crushed chocolate. Gorgeously rich, juicy and piquant on the palate, this lush and sensual Riesling seems riper and slightly sweeter, but also more intense compared with the Himmelreich. Its persistent finish is nicely mineral and salty on the aftertaste. This is a rich and potent wine with great potential."

A tightly coiled seam of mineral slatey-ness and tangy grip keeps the stunning package of concentrated stone fruits, pastilles, smoke, pungent citrus and white florals, all tightly woven and ravishingly refreshing. It's an Auslese for the ages, so much so that you could fill a room with this wine's ambition.

Crunchy yet nicely fleshed out, with good cut to the citrus and mineral notes that accent the apple and grapefruit flavors. Features firm acidity and a finish that echoes with ripe melon hints. Drink now through 2018.

Shows a well-defined richness to the lusciously fruity flavors of apricot, honeydew melon and white raspberry. A lattice structure supports plenty of spice and white chocolate notes. Finishes with candied ginger. Drink now through 2022. -KM Wine Spectator. A Riesling wine from Mosel Saar Ruwer in Germany. 2011 Joh Jos Prum Riesling Kabinett Wehlener Sonnenuhr 750ml
