Winemaker's Notes

This Kabinett wine shows intense ripe apple fruit, slightly mineral, typical of Prüm's wines. With great length and elegance, with just a hint of sweetness.

Serve this refreshing wine slightly chilled! As apéritif and – especially when more matured - in combination with seafood or poultry.

Critical Acclaim

"Plump and juicy, offering apricot, mango and mineral aromas and flavors. Loosens up a little midpalate, then the acidity kicks in on the finish. Drink now through 2020."
92 Points

"As with all of Prüm's 2007s, this stylish, delicate Kabinett is dominated by notes of fermentation on the nose, yet the fruit emerges on the palate with silky, subtle poise. It's strongly marked by the blue-slate character of the site, and holds superb balance and focus through the long finish."
92 Points

"Delicate aromas of cherry, apple blossom and sweet herbs. Firm apricot pit flavor, with a nice balance of sweetness and acidity to frame the palate. The elegant finish features persistent slate minerality. An excellent kabinett."
