Winemaker's Notes:

A delicate, well balanced Riesling showing floral, apricot and citrus notes. Expressive fruity Riesling characteristic with an underlying hint of minerals from the blue/grey Devonian slate soil.

Serve this refreshing wine slightly chilled! As apéritif and – especially when more matured - in combination with seafood or poultry, or to be drunk by itself.

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.
