Winemaker's Notes:

This offers a great fresh feel of white and yellow fruits, some smoke, dried herbs and brown spices. The wine is delicately fizzy on the palate, which adds to the joyful and playful feeling that this wines leaves in the long after-taste. This is a great success which remains devilishly easy to drink.

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.
