External Reviews for S.A. Prüm Riesling Essence
Essence Riesling - Recommended, Bloomberg Business Week/ S.A. Prüm's 2009 Essence Riesling is a light, dry, and affordable white wine perfect for summer lunches... as an aperitif, and as an accompaniment to food. The explosive fruit on the front of the palate gives a strong impression of sweetness, but this is deceptive, and it disappears as the wine slips down, the bracing acidity asserting itself for a bright, crisp finish. Essence is redolent of ripe peaches and pears, which, combined with Riesling's wonderful aromatic minerality, results in a pure and inexpensive summer delight.
Essence Riesling 2008/ An open white, showing peach and pear flavors, with a hint of orange. Perks up, with bright acidity that keeps this fresh on the finish.
Essence Riesling 2011 - 4 Stars, Restaurant Wine/ Finely flavored, lightly sweet, and medium bodies; an excellent Riesling, with delicate floral-fruit character (apple, pear, lime blossom, lemon), good balance, and a long finish. Excellent value.
Essence Riesling 2008/ Lovely, perfumed lemon-flower and spice aromas; sweetly appealing Riesling fruit, fine balance, and good zip. A lot for the money.
Essence Riesling 2012 - 87 points & Best Buy, Wine & Spirits/ Sweet-tart and gentle as a lemon bar, this is an easy riesling with just enough acidity to give it shape.
The estate is situated at Trier, Germany's oldest city. Trier is located on the Mosel near the Luxembourg and French boarder and was the capital of the northern Roman Empire under Emperor Constantine. The estate has continuously produced renowned wines from vineyards donated to support the school (Gymnasium) established in 1561 by the Jesuits of Tier. One of the notable former students of the Friedrich-Gymnasium was Karl Marx. This estate bottled vintage Riesling, originating from the steep slate slopes of the village of Graach's famous Himmelreich vineyards, one of the estate's oldest sites. Produced from late picked grapes, this wine was fermented and matured in traditional 1000L Fuder oak casks. Vintage: 2004 Grapes: 100% late harvested Estate grown Riesling Region: Mosel Soil: Slate Vineyard: South-west facing Graacher Himmelreich, sloped at about 60 degrees Serve: Chilled on its own or with spicy food , Asian cuisine and grilled prawns with tarragon Taste: Elegantly rich Mosel, subtle yet firm acidity in harmony with pear and apple flavours on the palate and a mouthfilling texture with an edge of spice on the finish.
Essence Riesling 2009 - 88 Points, Wine Spectator / A racy style, featuring crisp mineral and apple flavors that are backed up by plenty of fresh acidity. The juicy finish is spicy and well-structured.
Color: Pale gold Bouquet: Aromatic, with scents of apricot and peach Taste: Fresh fruit flavors perfectly balanced by a racy acidity and mineral character Serving Suggestions: Enjoy on its own or with a range of light appetizers and seafood dishes
