BACKGROUND

The RAIMUND PRÜM brand was created to showcase the high quality of the multifaceted Riesling varietal grown in the Mosel region, to a wider international audience. To do this, Raimund used his lifelong experience at S.A. Prum in estate wine production and his accumulated family knowledge of over 800 years to search for hillside vineyards and vintners that reflected his dedication to understanding Riesling. To ensure this quality, he guarantees the grower that their entire crop will be acquired by the Raimund Prüm organization. All vineyards reflect organic fertilizers and no insecticides while deploying Vegan fining to finish the wines. RAIMUND PRÜM focuses on quality first, with worldwide appeal and offerings priced at everyday values!

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

Essence reflects the quintessential medium-dry style of Riesling from the Mosel Valley. A blend of steep hillside vineyards (446’ to 1100’ asl) with varying Devonian slate soils, from small vintners are selected exclusively by Raimund Prüm. Devonian slate dates back in time to over 390 million years of age and consists of high mineral extracts that give structure and length to the wines.
2022 had a warm winter with less than usual rain fall. The warm spring contributed to fast growing shoots and fast flowering. This was followed by a very warm, dry summer. The harvest was early (mid- September) due to the fast ripening, with smaller yields.

WINEMAKING

Hand-picked grapes, fermented in stainless steel with cultured yeast, blended with suss reserve to achieve proper balance for the medium-dry style. Allowed to settle for three months with Vegan fining before release in March of the following year.

TASTING NOTES

It is highly aromatic, with scents of apricot, pineapple, green apple and white peach. Fresh fruit flavors are perfectly balanced by a racy acidity and a backdrop of mineral character derived from the varying slate soils which are the hallmarks of the Mosel Valley.
