Winemaker Notes

Dr. F. Weins-Prüm is the small estate, but the wines are anything but small. In fact the Wehlener and Graacher Rieslings from the estate rival those of his neighbor, Joh. Jos. Prüm. They are more subtle, much like the person producing them, the very reserved Bert Selbach.

Critical Acclaim

WS 91
Wine Spectator
Intense and vivid, with apple and lemon verbena notes and a coarseness to the texture. Give it some time to settle down. Best from 2004 through 2008.

Dr. F. Weins Prum, Germany
Sebastian Alois Prüm (1794 - 1871) was the patriarch of the original Prüm estate. Since Mathias Prüm (1835 - 1890) was the only one of his six sons to marry, the estate remained undivided for his generation. In 1911, however, it was finally divided among Mathias four sons and three daughters. Anna Prüm, the youngest of the children, and her husband used their inheritance to start Dr. F. Weins-Prüm estate.

A cellar with vaulted ceilings from an old Prüm home forms the foundation for today's manor house that the couple built in 1924. It is located on the banks of the Mosel, along with the other Prüm homes and right next door to J.J. Prüm.

The estate totals 12.5 acres, most on steeply sloping terrain, and is planted 100% to Riesling. The estate is a founding member of the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer V.D.P.. Almost half of the 6,000 cases of production are for export, primarily to Japan and the United States.

Following the Mosel River as it slithers and weaves dramatically through the Eifel Mountains in Germany’s far west, the Mosel wine region is considered by many as the source of the world’s finest and longest-lived Rieslings.

Mosel’s unique and unsurpassed combination of geography, geology and climate all combine together to make this true. Many of the Mosel’s best vineyard sites are on the steep south or southwest facing slopes, where vines receive up to ten times more sunlight, a very desirable condition in this cold climate region. Given how many twists and turns the Mosel River makes, it is not had to find a vineyard with this exposure. In fact, the Mosel’s breathtakingly steep slopes of rocky, slate-based soils straddle the riverbanks along its entire length. These rocky slate soils, as well as the river, retain and reflect heat back to the vineyards, a phenomenon that aids in the complete ripening of its grapes.

Riesling is by far the most important and prestigious grape of the Mosel, grown on approximately 60% of the region’s vineyard land—typically on the desirable sites that provide the best combination of sunlight, soil type and altitude. The best Mosel Rieslings—dry or sweet—express marked acidity, low alcohol, great purity and intensity with aromas and flavors of wet slate, citrus and stone fruit. With age, the wine’s color will become more golden and pleasing aromas of honey, dried apricot and sometimes petrol develop.

Other varieties planted in the Mosel include Müller-Thurgau, Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), all performing quite well here.
