No account of the estates of the Mosel would be complete without an account of Joh. Jos. (often referred to more simply as J-J) Prüm, which is without doubt a leader in the region, and thus in all Germany. The family has been tending vines on the banks of the Mosel river since the 17th century, but the current estate only came into being in 1911, when the family vineyards and original estates were divided between two grandchildren; this share taken by Johann Josef Prüm, and still family owned and operated with the fourth generation. (The other portion taken by Sebastein Alois Prüm also still exists today under the name SA Prüm.) They have several vineyards; this riesling comes from the site known as Graacher Himmelreich, which has steep slopes and slate soils ideal for precise, mineral-driven riesling. Off-dry, with a density of stone fruit flavors, this powerful riesling beautifully balances minerality, sweetness, and acidity. Organically grown, vegan.
