The Prüm name has been synonymous with quality wine production in the middle Mosel where the family has been cultivating vineyards since 1156. Sebastian Alois Prüm (1794-1871), owned 17 hectares in the mid 19th century, the largest privately-owned wine estate on the Mosel at the time. His great grandson Raimund (1950 – present), inherited in 1971 and in 2017, passed the estate to his daughter Saskia, who qualified as a winemaker at the famous university of Geisenheim.
Saskia is the first female in the history of the Prűm family to head the estate and also owns the Sonnenuhr (sundial), constructed by her ancestors in 1842, which gives the name to the world famous Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard.
The unique micro-climate of the middle Mosel, with its mineral rich slate soils from the Devonian period, gives the Riesling its world-famous character. Prum only have vineyards on steep slopes in in the middle of the Mosel which are perfectly suited for Riesling. They have several plots with their being the the Wehlener Sonnenuhr (or Sundial) plot. No insecticides are used in their vineyards and they work with only organic fertilizers. The Riamund Prum range works with selected growers, whos vineyards meet the high specifications of the Saskia, to create excellent but great value wines.
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. After some time of ageing in tank, it is bottled with a screw cap to preserve its fresh, youthful and yummy character.
Aromatic, with scents of apricot, green apple and white peach. Fresh fruit flavors perfectly balanced by a racy acidity and a lot of mineral character. It’s a wonderful example of how to do a perfectly balanced off-dry Riesling
It’s just crying out to be paired with an aromaticly spice Thai or Idian curry! It’ll also be a great match with Mexican food and it works fantastically with a strong blue cheese. For a truely German feast, try with Chiriboga Blue.
