Very balanced Riesling. Aromatic and fruity with added minerality. Slightly sweet but not overbearing. Great with spicy foods or seafood.

/ Bright, lively lime and green pear flavors are backed by dusty minerality, finishing with a racy, mouthwatering zestiness.

Essence Riesling 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.

Essence Riesling 2008 - Colorado Wine News/ Opens with petrol, grapefruit, floral, and a woody note before slightly sweet flavors of grapefruit, floral, lemon, and apple. It finishes medium-broad and medium-long. Well balanced, structured, and integrated.

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, 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 The 140-acre Würzgarten (spice garden) vineyard has a unique soil of red slate and “Rotliegendes,” a red soil of volcanic origin. The wines from this vineyard have an exotic, herbal quality with an extraordinary depth of flavor. The site features extremely steep vineyards of old, ungrafted vines. Grape Varieties 100% Riesling Vinification Select grapes are hand-harvested in mid October and, following de-stemming and six hours of skin contact, fermented with native yeasts for 4-5 weeks in stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine is bottled under Stelvin closure. Color Light gold Bouquet Delicate nose of ripe peaches in combination with unique herbal aromatics Taste Extraordinary depth of flavor. Perfectly balanced fruit flavors with distinct minerality Alcohol 7.5% Serving Suggestions Well-matched with salads, seafood and light veal dishes.

/ 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.

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.

Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Kabinett 2006/ Released in the US a bit later than most German wines, Raimund Prum's 2006 Wurzgarten kabinett remains primary and fresh, filling the room with aromas of green apple, lime and slate. It's medium in body (9% alcohol) and slightly creamy in texture, with an off-dry finish marked by hints of lime zest.
