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 long winter and rather cool and wet spring, June started to bring more sunshine, and flowering happened around mid-June. Mosel enjoyed a beautiful, warm and dry summertime in July and August, which developed the ripening very positively. September, again, was only average in temperatures, so the ripening continued rather slowly. When picking started on October 23rd, all vineyards had been affected by botrytis. At record speed, harvest was finished on November 11th. All grapes harvested had such high Oechsle levels and beautiful botrytis, that this turned out to be a truly special Auslese vintage.
Graacher Himmelreich (“Kingdom of heaven in the village of Grach) faced more westwards, little less steep and deeper soils than Wehlener Sonnenuhr, weather-beaten grey slate soil with good water reservoirs
Grapes picked by hand, predominantly single pale, fermentation in stainless steel tanks with wild yeast.
