Background

The RAIMUND PRÜM line of wines was created to showcase the high quality of the multifaceted Riesling varietal grown in the Mosel region. Raimund uses his lifelong experience at S.A. Prum in estate wine production and his accumulated family knowledge of over 800 years to search for hillside vineyards and vintners that reflected his dedication to understanding Riesling. To ensure this quality, he guarantees the grower that their entire crop will be acquired by his winery. All vineyards only use organic fertilizers and no insecticides with Vegan fining to finish the wines.

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

Essence reflects the quintessential medium-dry style of Riesling from the Mosel Valley. A blend of steep hillside vineyards (446’ to 1100’ asl) with varying Devonian slate soils, from small vintners are selected exclusively by Raimund Prüm. Devonian slate dates back in time to over 390 million years of age and consists of high mineral extracts that give structure and length to the wines. 2021 is considered a Quality vintage that had special issues to contend with. The vintage started off with a cool and wet spring that delayed the budding by 3-4 weeks. June brought an explosion of growth due to warm conditions and ample water for the vines. An unstable summer ended with a long, cool and dry autumn allowing for proper maturity. Strict selection processing was required with the outcome of an exciting enormously fruit-driven intensity paired with a lively acidic structure.

Winemaking & Aging

Hand-picked grapes, fermented in stainless steel with cultured yeast, a blending of vineyards that have different RS levels to achieve a nature balance of approximately 22 g/L - a medium-dry style. Allowed to settle for three months with Vegan fining before release in March of the following year.

Tasting Notes

It is highly aromatic, with scents of apricot, pineapple, green apple and white peach. Fresh fruit flavors are perfectly balanced by a racy acidity and a backdrop of mineral character derived from the varying slate soils which are the hallmarks of the Mosel Valley.
