J.J. Prüm is a member of the Großer Ring Verband Deutscher Prädikats- und Qualitätsweingüter. The estate has 14 acres of holdings in the Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Bernkasteler Lay, Bernkasteler Badstube and Zeltinger Sonnenuhr vineyards. Only Riesling is grown and harvested at these sites. The most important of these sites are Wehlener Sonnenuhr and Graacher Himmelreich, in terms of both quantity and quality for the winery. Seventy percent of the vines are ungrafted. Depending on the vintage, the average annual production is 10,000 to 13,000 cases of wine. Stuart Pigott says of J.J. Prum that "since the early 1920's its wines have been among Germany’s best Rieslings with the Mosel’s vivacious aroma and racy elegance in its highest form". Wine writer Stephen Brook says that "The wines, whether a modest Kabinett or an opulent Beerenauslese, are the epitome of filigree elegance: light in body but intense in flavour, exquisitely balanced and precisely tuned, and capable of the most extra-ordinary longevity".  Read less

This is a gift from the fruit of the vine. To put it simply, ENJOY!

The Prum 2007 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spandauml;tlese is intriguingly- as well as gorgeously-scented with peony, narcissus, heliotrope, mint, and fresh apple. Creamy and buoyant on the palate, it caresses and seduces with suggestions of lemon chiffon and vanilla flan, but then leaves a surprisingly adamant, stony, subtly zesty finish as if to put the taster on notice that there is a lot more here than meets the palate at such a youthful juncture.

Wine Tasting NotesBrilliant wine, as always from this address, and an example of classic Mosel Riesling. Forward in style. Intensely aromatic and bursting with herb, peach, lime and slate notes riding a firm, focused structure and creamy texture. Beautifully put together and long on the finish. Best from 2008 through 2025.

Medium gold. Medium bodied. Moderately extracted. peach, tart apple, minerals. Complex aromas. Bright, zippy with ripe fruit flavors and full, crisp acids through the finish.

Exotic bouquet of passion fruit and mango, lifted by fine floral nuances. The wine's luscious peach pit flavor and velvety texture are given shape and verve by a finely chiseled minerality. Dense yet airy, this spatlese boasts great refinement and stunning length. One of the stars of the vintage.

Some of Pranduuml;mandrsquo;s releases in this decade have been more fruit-forward and less overtly yeasty than in the past, but this wine feels like a Pranduuml;m Spandauml;tlese of old: tightly restrained and stubbornly closed behind a wall of youthful fermentation aromas, it takes its time to reveal subtle detail and silky depth of fruit. Itandrsquo;s infused by the haunting blue-slate character for which the vineyard is renowned, and white it undoubtedly packs more richness and ripeness than a Pranduuml;m wine of 20 years ago, it maintains a similar feeling of delicacy, purity and grace.

Young and unevolved, yet this shows remarkable clarity and delicacy for 2003. Very silky in texture and bright, framing the apricot, lime and slate flavors nicely. Very harmonious, with a long, lingering aftertaste. Drink now through 2020.
