Winemaker Notes

Designated Grosse Gewächs (Great Growth) by the VDP wines from Erste Lage vineyard sites must meet specific vineyard yield limits, attain sugar content of at least Auslese level, complete fermentation to dryness, and undergo vineyard inspection and taste testing. Grapes are hand harvested in October and de-stemmed before 6-12 hours of skin contact, then allowed long, slow, cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks.

Golden color. On the nose, apricot and minerals, clean and good balance with the notes characteristic of a dry Riesling. A dry, full bodied palate, and structured wine with depth, concentrated stone fruit and minerality. Perfect to enjoy as an aperitif or with grilled salmon, chicken, scallops in cream sauce, and with oysters. This is a special wine that can be enjoyed with complex, flavorful, and unique dishes.

Wine Enthusiast
Intensely ripe yet vibrantly balanced, this late-release dry Riesling offers luscious peach and apricot flavors dusted by shards of crushed slate. It's showing glimpses of earthen minerality already, but zesty lemon and grapefruit acidity lend freshness. Lovely now but it should continue to improve through 2030.

S.A. Prum Winery Image

The Prüm family’s roots in the Mosel region of Germany date back as far as 1156, making it one the country’s preeminent winemaking dynasties. Their incredible Riesling portfolio reflects traditional winemaking practices with exceptional single vineyard designated wines in every style.

Family-owned S.A. Prüm, founded in 1911 by Sebastian Alois Prüm, has been in the hands of Raimund Prüm, head winemaker and Sebastian’s grandson, since 1971. Under Raimund’s leadership the property has earned a reputation as one of the most successful wineries in Germany’s celebrated Mosel wine region. S.A. Prüm is a founding member of the Association of German Premium Wineries (VDP), a consortium of Germany’s top producers. Raimund Prüm employs organic fertilization, hand-picking and strict yield control to ensure the utmost quality.

The estate comprises 40 acres of vineyards planted principally with Riesling. Over 15 acres of S.A. Prüm’s holdings are located within the famed Wehlener Sonnenuhr (“sundial of Wehlen”) domain. Named for the historic sundial painted on an outcrop of slate by a Prüm ancestor back in 1842, the incredibly steep Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard is a renowned source of what is arguably Germany’s finest Riesling. Here vines average 80 years and older and benefit from plentiful sunshine – a critical factor in the world’s northernmost wine producing country. The soil is comprised of layers of finely decomposed, mineral-rich slate. Underneath, deep-lying aquifers provide the vines with adequate water during dry periods.

Since taking over in 1971, Raimund “The Red” Prüm has expanded the winery’s vineyard holdings from 3.5 Ha to 30 Ha. Always joyous with boundless energy, Raimund remains the “face” of the winery. He, along with his wife, Pirjo – the estate’s sommelier – act as global consultant and ambassador, for S.A. Prüm. In 2017, Raimund’s daughter Saskia assumed full ownership of S.A. Prüm Estate. She is the lead winemaker, responsible for managing all aspects of the estate’s wine portfolio. Saskia marks the first time that S.A. Prüm is owned by a woman!
