Winemaker's Notes

Silky, harmonious and refined, with apricot, apple, lime and mineral aromas and flavors on a light-weight frame. Balanced, its hidden structure evident in the tanginess on the finish and lingering aftertaste of baked apple.

Serve this refreshing wine slightly chilled! As apéritif or – especially when more matured - in combination with seafood and poultry, but also red meat. Exciting match also with Asian and Pacific Rim cuisine.

Critical Acclaim

"This is an archetypal Prum Auslese, from its aristrocratic poise and silky finesse to its vibrant energy and crystalline complexity. It's sleek fruit is succulent rather than overly rich, and its subtle, mineral-drenched flavors unfold in kaleidoscopic detail on a long and fragrant finish. At the same time, its youthfulness is almost painfully evident, a reminder that drinking this wine in optimum maturity is a pleasure that won't be experienced for at least two or three decades."
96 Points

"Pale golden yellow. Classy bouquet of ripe apple, vanilla and sweet herbs. Rich on the palate, with a salty, resinous character and undeniably sweet apricot fruit. Unctuous yet vibrantly spicy, with a long, complex finish. This still needs time but will be a great auslese."
95 Points

"Pungent aromas of slate and flowers give way to peach and lime in this unevolved Riesling. The texture is supersilky, with great harmony among all the elements. Terrific length. Needs time. Best from 2014 through 2040. "
