Wine Spectator | Rating: 95Ripe, rich and voluptuous, with loads of peach, apricot and mango flavors that feature lots of honey cream and spice notes. The plush finish is a mouthwatering mix of honeydew melon and dried mango. Very well-balanced and seductive. Drink now through 2040.Author: Kim Marcus
Created in 1911 by a split of family vineyards, this estate has built its stellar reputation on the strength of its long-lived Rieslings. First under the direction of Johann Josef Prum, and followed by subsequent generations, the winery is now maintained by Dr. Manfred Prum. The 33 acres of estate vineyards on the steep, rocky slopes of the middle Mosel produce 13,000 cases annually, running the full spectrum of the Pradikat. These vineyards boast 70% original rootstock, and low-yielding old vines. The resulting wines are known for their full-flavored fruit, spiciness, and slow development, which greatly rewards patient cellaring.
