BACKGROUND

The Prüm family’s roots in the Mosel region of Germany date back as far as 1156, making it one the country’s preeminent winemaking dynasties. Their incredible Riesling portfolio reflects traditional winemaking practices with exceptional single vineyard designated wines in every style. Family-owned S.A. Prüm, founded in 1911 by Sebastian Alois Prüm, was in the hands of Raimund Prüm, head winemaker and Sebastian’s grandson, from 1971to 2017. Under Raimund’s leadership the property has earned a reputation as one of the most successful wineries in Germany’s celebrated Mosel wine region. Today his daughter Saskia A. Prüm is taking care of the success of the family business.

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

A selection of grapes from some of the top vineyard sites in Germany’s Mosel region, grown only on steep hills.

WINEMAKING

Grapes are hand harvested in mid-October and undergo a gentle crush. The juice is fermented with cultured yeasts for several weeks in stainless steel tanks. It was bottled the following March under Stelvin closure to preserve its fresh, youthful character.

TASTING NOTES

Pale gold in color. Aromatic, with scents of apricot, green apple and white peach. Fresh fruit flavors perfectly balanced by a racy acidity and a fine, mineral character. Enjoy on its own or with a range of light and delicious appetizers, white meat, BBQ, seafood dishes, perfect with Asian cuisine and all styles of spicy food.
