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.
2012 in our part of the Mosel was marked by overall rather cool weather throughout much of the year, with some warmer episodes, but no real extremes. By mid-October Prüm was still expecting a predominately “Kabinett vintage”, one with moderate ripeness and rather high acidity. However, summer-like weather surprised us at the end of October and our wait to harvest paid off. The sunny days pushed the ripening in the vineyards tremendously and harvest lasted until November 17th. The vintage was then “crowned” by the possibility to produce an Eiswein on December 12, in Graacher Himmelreich!
Wehlener Sonnenuhr („Sonnenuhr“ literally means sundial) most famous and best vineyard of JJ Prüm; deep, weather-beaten grey slate soil, extreme steepness of 70%, south-southwest exposure; wines can be aged for years to express their fine minerality and depth
grapes are hand-picked, single pole trellis, fermentation in stainless steel with wild yeast
