Description

Medium lemon in color. The wine is highly aromatic with peach, apricot, and tropical fruit notes. A dry style (trocken), the palate nuances a vibrant and racy tone with stone and citrus fruit over a mineral backdrop. It's perfectly balanced and precise.

Enjoy on its own or with a range of appetizers, salads, seafood dishes, Asian or spicy cuisine, white meats or barbeque. - Winemaker's Notes

The Winery

Founded in 1911 by Sebastian Alois Prum, family-owned S.A. Prum has been in the hands of Raimund Prum, head winemaker and Sebastian's grandson, since 1971 when he assumed full management of the estate. The property has earned a reputation as one of Germany's most successful wineries, internationally acclaimed for its production of superb quality Riesling. The Prum family has a rich and ancient history in the mid-Mosel, where they have owned vineyards in the towns of Bernkastel, Graach, Wehlen and Zeltingen.

Today, the estate comprises 40 acres of vineyards planted principally with Riesling. Over 15 acres of S.A. Prum's holdings are located within the famed Wehlener Sonnenuhr ("sundial of Wehlen") domain. Named for the historic and well-recognized sundial painted on an outcrop of slate by a Prum ancestor back in 1842, the incredibly steep Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard is a globally renowned source of what is arguably Germany's finest Riesling. As the name suggests, Wehlener Sonnenuhr, where vines average 80 years and older, benefits from plentiful sunshine _ a critical factor in the world's northernmost wine producing country. The soil is comprised of layers of finely decomposed, mineral-rich blue slate that date back approximately 400 million years. Underneath, deep-lying aquifers provide the vines with adequate water during dry periods.
