Importer Note:


The Kabinetts are obviously the lightest bodied Rieslings and therefore the ones best matched with most delicate dishes. They are also the most racy and will develop the fastest, yet still live for decades! The Estate is a blend of Prüm vineyards and is almost dry, racy, pure and crunchy. The Graacher Himmelreich and Wehlener Sonnenuhr are, as always, a big step up in class and intensity. The Graacher shows fabulous precision and finesse with citrus pith and floral notes whereas the Wehlener shows more ripe apple pulp, more density and more structure for now. All are delicious introductions to the vintage and to the J.J. Prüm estate, and all are for savoury foods only.

Importer Note:

The Wehlener Sonnenuhr (the sundial of Zeltingen) vineyard has become intrinsically attached to the name of Joh. Jos. Prüm. The Estate owns five hectares of this majestic site – largely plated to ungrafted wines - which has very thin topsoil over pure slate. Riesling guru Stuart Pigott has written;“Joh Jos Prüm’s Sonnenuhrs are classic examples of the way in which the best Mosel wine’s natural sweetness magnifies, rather than obscures, their character. These are a perfect marriage of Riesling’s peach-like, floral and mineral aspects. White wine cannot be fresher, more vivid and delightful.” While the wines of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr can be closed when first released, with time they develop hedonistic textures and seductive characters of ripe peach and kernel. They are wines of great depth and length. Along with neighbouring Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, this is the steepest of Prüm’s blue chip vineyards – a dizzying 65-70% gradient. While all Prüm wines can live and develop for 20 to 50 years plus, it is the wines of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr that are the most legendary for their aging capacity.
