The famous wine estate Joh. Jos. Prüm was founded in 1911in Wehlen, on the Mosel. It is one of the most unique white wine producers in Germany.
After a mild start with a mixture of dry and rosty days, the months June, July and August brought high temperatures, with a peak of a remarkable 39.5°C. The rainfall in July helped to prevent damage from drought stress. A greater challenge for the winegrowers was damage caused by sunburn. Nevertheless, the ripening in the last decade of September had progressed so speedily that they already began to harvest a ripe vintage with good acidity and high extract. Even if the quantities were more moderate, the excellent taste, a fine spiciness, good acidity and a rich offer of different. Prüm is looking forward to an impressive vintage with fine acidity and great potential.
