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

94 Points Mosel Fine Wines
The 2020er Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese offers an attractive nose of smoke, flint, apricot flower, a hint of melon, Conference pear, greengage, and anise, as well as some exotic nuances. The wine proves delicately complex and fruity on the smooth palate. Fruity and ripe flavors of pear, melon, and coconut cream come through in the well-delineated and superbly complex finish. This is a gorgeous and beautifully complex Auslese in the making.
