Estate Notes

The famed Prüm portfolio includes a number of truly illustrious vineyards, but it is undoubtedly the vines in the Sonnenuhr (lit.sundial) on the opposite bank to the town of Wehlen that produce the most iconic wines. These are long lived and represent some of the finest wines coming out of Germany today based ongreat sites, old vines, low yields and very late harvesting and selection of only the best berries.

The non-interventionist winemaking is as natural as possible to let their fabulous terroirs shine through. 

Reviews

“The 2007 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Gold Capsule is proof that – 40 years after the Summer of Love – Flower Power is still a viable concept, at least chez Prum. Sweetly perfumed gardenia, decadent lily, bitter-sweet iris ... all cavort in a matrix of apple and quince preserves, vanilla and lemon cream, honey and white raisin. And for all of its richness, sweetness is the last thing on your mind while this wine is on the table. I imagine you could simply inhale its entire, vast sensual contents, so ethereal is every aspect of it. And if that doesn’t get you high, then you’re no Mosel wine lover!

“The characteristics of great Riesling from the Prum estate coincide with one of the most striking virtues of 2007 Mosel Rieslings in general, namely the ability to combine intensity of aroma and flavor with delicacy, and caressing richness with vivacity. In a sense, the best wines in this year’s collection are like Prum-squared in their distinctiveness and expressivity.” eRobertParker.com
