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

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. Wine Spectator. A Riesling wine from Mosel Saar Ruwer in Germany. 2003 Prum, Joh Jos Riesling Spatlese Wehlener Sonnenuhr 750ml

Prum is unquestionably the most renowned producer in Germany, and often his wines are candidates for best of the vintage. For starters, there is the 1990 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese, with its bouquet of vanilla, apples and minerals. In the mouth there is great fruit, beautifully etched flavors, and a long, crisp, highly extracted finish. Drink this dry Spätlese over the next 7-10 years.

A completely seductive and appealing '01 spatlese. Seamless and airy in texture, yet layered with peach, citrus and mineral aromas and flavors enmeshed in the delicate frame. Lovely finish. Drink now through 2015.

The nose provides an elegant array of fresh melon and floral aromas. On the palate, there is well-defined ripeness (mainly honeydew) complemented by lively acidity and fine mineral. The finish is remarkably long and complex right now, but it would also be interesting to see how these flavors will evolve in the years to come.

Delicate scents of fresh apple, apple jelly, honey and vanilla. Again, this is feather-light in the mouth, yet has wonderful reach and penetration of baked apple, nut oil, marzipan, slate and vanilla flavors. Really finely balanced, this shows a lot less overt sweetness than the typical young Prum Spatlese.

Elegant aromas of Bing cherry, apple blossom and roasted pine nuts. Sweet, delicate and nonetheless creamy on the palate, with sweet herbs and a touch of vanilla. Lemon curd and slate animate this serious spätlese's compelling finish.
