DescriptionS.A Prüm is a family-owned wine estate nestled on the banks of Germanys serene Mosel River, at the heart of the country's celebrated Mosel-Saar-Ruwer growing region. Here, the Prm family has cultivated vines for over 200 years. The estate has been in the hands of Raimund Prm, owner and winemaker, since 1971 when he assumed full management. Under his leadership, the property has become one of the regions most successful wineries, boasting an international reputation for the production of exquisite Rieslings.
VinificationGrapes are hand-harvested and destemmed. After extended maceration on the skins (to lower acidity and round out the structure of the wine) and a fermentation with wild yeast, the resulting wine was refined in stainless steel tanks then bottled.
