S.A. Prum Riesling Essence Qualitatswein Mosel 2011
I had this wine at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in New Orleans and it was very good!!! Definitely a keeper.
Very balanced Riesling. Aromatic and fruity with added minerality. Slightly sweet but not overbearing. Great with spicy foods or seafood.
External Reviews for S.A. Prum Riesling Essence Qualitatswein Mosel
/ Bright, lively lime and green pear flavors are backed by dusty minerality, finishing with a racy, mouthwatering zestiness.
/ With centuries of winemaking tradition to draw on and a wealth of distinctive grape varieties and grapegrowing terrain - Europe is still in the top tier when it comes to the values competition. Peachy-tasting and off-dry, these six German Rieslings feature low alcohol levels and crisp structures. They pair nicely with pork and also make excellent aperitifs.
Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spatlese 2011 - 92 points, Wine Enthusiast/ While apple and lemon aromas are subdued in this remarkably complex off-dry Riesling, the palate is penetrating, with juicy peach and preserved quince flavors. The acidity is brisk and brash, highlighting a deeply mineral midpalate. Finishes long, with a slightly smoky touch.
Ürziger Wurzgarten Riesling Kabinett 2009 - 4 stars, Restaurant Wine/ Here’s an excellent range of SA Prum’s wines over recent vintages. The Urziger Kabinett is light bodied, lightly sweet, and finely flavored (apple and lime, with floral, spicy overtones); a wine with good depth and balance, and a persistent finish.

Essence 2012 - 89 points & Best Buy, Wine Enthusiast/ Smoke and crushed mineral notes, along with a lean, herbal tone, make this off-dry Riesling especially elegant and savory in style. Lime zest and lemon flavors fill the mouth with vital energy. It finishes moderately long, on a juicy tangerine note.
