Winemaker's Notes:

Floral, apricot and mineral notes burst from the glass, and the wine is silky and impeccably balanced. Very concentrated, yet lightweight and elegant, with a fresh aftertaste. This wine has a remarkable amount of botrytis/noble rot. Very complex and well-structured wine. Very good interplay between floral flavors, mineral acidity and citrus aromas. Great ageing potential – will be enjoyable for many decades.

Serve this refreshing wine slightly chilled! As apéritif, but also with many kinds of food: Experience not only the matching with seafood and poultry, but also with red meat. Wonderful partner also for rich dishes like foie gras. Can be served as dessert or together with only moderately sweetened desserts like apple or apricot tartes.

About JJ Prum:

For centuries the Prüm family has called the village of Wehlen home. The 33.5 acre estate consists of nearly 70% ungrafted vines. Holdings are in the best parts of the top Middle-Mosel sites: Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Graacher Domprobst, Bernkasteler Lay, Bernkasteler Badstube, and Bernkasteler Bratenhöfchen. Average annual production is 13,000 cases. The harvest at J.J. Prüm is always extremely late, and the wines are very long-lived.
