Description

JJ Prüm is one of the most revered wine Estates in Germany and this seductive Kabinett Riesling is a knock out. Don’t let the off-dry description put you off as you are sure to be won over by this seductive drop. With mouth-watering acidity and so much aromatic expression; this is a complex wine in perfect balance. It is so food versatile and even capable of standing up to the likes of chilli and Asian cuisine. 9% ABV.

Technical Details

This wine is made from 100% Riesling grapes. Manfred Prüm, the owner and winemaker believes in low-intervention in the vineyard and the cellar and they chose to begin harvest generally when the others are finishing. Fermentations occur in steel vats with natural yeasts, at very low temperatures. No oak barrels are used to mature the wines.
