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

Pale yellow. Sweet floral aromas over raspberry, nutmeg and lemon oil. The palate is rich but juicy, with a persistent honeyed character. Finishes soft and low-keyed, with peach and mineral salts. A serious spatlese but not in the normal house style. Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Riesling wine from Mosel Saar Ruwer in Germany. 2006 Prum, Joh Jos Riesling Spatlese Wehlener Sonnenuhr 750ml

Pale golden yellow. Subdued bouquet of passion fruit, nut oil and acacia blossom. The lusciously sweet tropical fruit flavors are highlighted by a refreshing gingery acidity that keeps the palate light in spite of the wine’s density. Although elegant and aristocratic, this auslese is also quite full-bodied, finishing astoundingly long, on a spicy botrytis note.

Aromatic, offering smoke, slate, peach and floral aromas. It picks up a lime accent on the palate. Lighter than air, with a silky texture and long, tangy aftertaste. There’s a nice combination of intensity and delicacy. Drink now through 2030.
