Weingut Joh. Jos. Prüm (J.J. Prüm), nestled in the village of Wehlen on the Middle-Mosel, produces truly great German wine with extraordinary longevity. Exceptionally long growing seasons made up of clement days and fresh nights, allow the Riesling grapes, anchored to the near vertical slopes of the banks of the Mosel, to ripen very slowly. This results in a raciness, a finesse and a delicacy of fruit that gives these wines a reputation of being amongst the finest from such a northerly latitude. Once in their full stride, they shine with a terrific sense of breeding and place, elegant in their solidity, sophistication and harmony.
"This has the trademark flintiness of Graacher Himmelreich on the nose, and then the equally typical softly fruited, pliant body with sherbet and candied citrus. This is the pick of the Auslesen for early drinking, supremely open and giving.
Germany produces some of the world’s very finest white wines, presenting natural, grapey richness complemented by racy acidity. A really fine example sets off a roller coaster of emotion akin to a skilfully played piece of music.
