Wine is a kind of bottled energy and there is no producer that packs more voltage into their bottles than Joh. Jos. Prüm. The Prüm family history in the Mosel dates back as early as 1156, though it was Johann Josef Prüm (1873 – 1944) who founded the estate in 1911. Under Johann Josef’s son, Sebastian, by the mid-1930s the distinctive style of the Prüm wines had been forged. From 1969, the imitable Dr Manfred Prüm would take the reputation Joh. Jos. Prüm to even greater heights, and today the estate is run by Manfred’s daughter Katharina Prüm who watches over 13.5 precious hectares of vines perched on the vertiginous slate-rich slopes of the Middle Mosel.

Tasting Notes

93 Points Mosel Fine Wines
The 2020er Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese offers a superbly spicy, herbal, and refreshing nose of rosemary, vineyard peach, almond cream, white flowers, mint, and cassis. The wine is superbly well-balanced on the palate, where delicious creamy and fruity flavors of almond, vineyard peach, and tangerine make for a pure and smooth feeling. The finish is very long, nicely structured, and well-delineated. This is a superb Spätlese which only now requires some patience for its elements to integrate.
