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 Spätlese (late harvest) is produced from grapes grown in the prestigious Graacher Himmelreich vineyard in Germany’s middle Mosel region. The soils in this vineyard are comprised of blue/gray slate. The altitude is 450-600 feet. The vines are an average of 60 to 70 years old, are ungrafted (original rootstock), single vine training, and reach up to 50’ deep. Grape Varieties 100% Riesling Vinification Grapes were hand-selected. Fermentation is with wild yeast, in stainless steel tanks, and no malolactic fermentation. The resulting wine was refined in tank 6 months then bottled. Color Bright, vibrant gold Bouquet Delicate aromas of rose petals and citrus blossoms Taste Flavors of peach, melon, apple and ginger spice mingling with mineral nuances. Full bodied, with a long, balanced finish Alcohol 8% Serving Suggestions Delicious with lobster, shrimp and spicy Thai-style dishes, as well as blue cheeses, creamy cheeses, fruit desserts and fresh fruit.

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 Select grapes are hand-harvested in mid October and, following de-stemming and six hours of skin contact, ferment for nine weeks in stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine is bottled under Stelvin closure. Color Light lemon with green tints Bouquet Fresh green apple and citrus notes Taste Crisp flavors of lemon and peach against a mineral backdrop Alcohol 8% Serving Suggestions Well-matched with salads, seafood and light veal dishes.
