Winemaker's Notes:

This classical Graacher Himmelreich Auslese is an excellent example of an elegant Mosel Riesling Auslese. It shows a fascinating interplay between crispy fruit aromas and flavors, an expressive minerality and a fine acidity. This wine has a long aging potential and will develop even more harmony and finesse in the years to come.

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.
