aromatic combination of gasoline, sweet peaches, and honey. Very complex and interesting on the palate, wonderful concentration of fruit, balance of acidity, and lingering mouthfeel

Nice stone fruit and grapefruit but very little sweetness. Firm acidity. Cool, short, almost minty finish. A very nice wine, but pales in comparison to the 08 Dr. L Loosen I tasted at the same time. Would be happy to drink this again though!

So delicious. I almost hate to drink it when I am eating.... although it is certainly great paired with lighter fare. Perfect for sipping throughout an evening of good company and conversation. A definite winner at our house; when we find it we must buy two bottles!

An aromatic version, showing lilac, freesia and violet notes, followed by baked apple, black currant and slate flavors. Elegant and tightly wound, with a racy structure well-fused to the rich texture. The appealing aftertaste features notes of candied berries and mineral. Drink now through 2032.

A lovely effort from proprietor Raimund PRüm, this plump, creamy-textured Spätlese displays ample minerality - there's a distinctly slate-driven note - allied to ripe apple, stone fruit and citrus. Sweet but not overwhelmingly so, this would be terrific with slightly sweet or spicy dishes.

Apricot and cantaloupe scents are accompanied by hints of shale stone. This medium-bodied wine has flavors of candied apple and honey. The flash of acidity on the finish makes it palate-cleansing and refreshing.

This wine is the color of white gold. Sweet peaches and citrus flavors are carried along the palate by the rich acidity. This wine has some weight, almost like petrol, giving this Spätlese some kick. The finish is fruity, and honey seems to linger.

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 and the involvement of his daughter Saskia, 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, single-vineyard Riesling is produced from grapes grown in the famed gray slate soil of the renowned Wehlener Sonnenuhr which has recently been designated an Erste Lage – or top vineyard site by the VDP. The gray slate soils of the Sonnenuhr (sundial) vineyard have a high tin content which lends minerality to the wines. Ancestor Jodocus Prüm erected the famous sundial in 1842, which became a hallmark for the mid-Mosel area. The soil of this famous domain is comprised of Devonian gray slate, and soft slate with a high tin content, which adds a distinctive, fresh minerality to the wines. This is the best vineyard in the Mosel River, with a southerly aspect. The altitude is between 425-1100 feet, with a steep 60% slope. The mountains’ treeline, rising above the vineyards, blocks cold winds from entering the valley. Grape Varieties 100% Riesling Vinification Individually selected late harvest berries, some botrytis-touched, are hand-harvested in October. Following a period of maceration on the skins and five weeks of fermentation, the wine was aged for six months in stainless steel. The wine was then bottled under natural cork. Color Gold Bouquet Highly aromatic, with scents recalling cantaloupe, sweet apricot and mineral Taste Medium-bodied, complex and refined, with rich fruit flavors underscored by nuances of mineral and slate Alcohol 8.5% Serving Suggestions Outstanding as an aperitif or matched with pâtés, cheeses, roast turkey, duck breast and Asian cuisine.

Grape Varieties 100% Riesling Vinification Perfectly over-ripened, botrytis-affected grapes are individually, hand-selected and harvested late October. Fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks, then rests in tank before bottling the following March. Color Gold Bouquet Sweet nectarine, apricot and candied peaches Taste Complex fruit aromas carry through onto the palate, where they blend seamlessly with caramel notes and traces of slate, underscored by a bracing acidity Alcohol 8.2% Serving Suggestions Exceptional on its own or paired with pâtés, foie gras and creamy cheeses.

Winemaker's Notes:

Peach, lime and floral aromas and flavors are highlighted by a golden apple tone in this pure, focused Riesling, with a juicy, lime- and mineral-tinged aftertaste. Has great definition, based on the vibrant structure and precision balance
