This clear lemon colour Kabinett invites us aromas of artichoke & fennel, connecting them subsequently to a remarkable and captivating flavours of Japanese pears and Saturn peaches that anchor the palate with a silky pearl honey in the finish. Harmonious and well structured off-dry white wine that will attain the mellowness of age for another decade or two.

JJ Prüm vines are located in the best vineyard sites of Middle Mosel: Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Bernkasteler Badstube & Zeltinger Sonnenuhr.
Graacher Himmelrich’s slate soils are a little deeper and more water retentive than in the adjoining Wehlener Sonnenuhr, therefore the Kabinetts can be distinguished by the complexity and structure of the wine. His parcel comprises 62ha, facing SW above the village of Graach.
The family vineyard originated in the early 1800’s with Mathias Prüm.
In 1911 the family Prüm divided all the parcels in 6 Wineries.
Sebastian Alois, the oldest son of Johann Josef Prüm is the one who introduced the sweet winemaking into the family business (BA, TBA).
Today’s owners and winemakers are Dr. Manfred and Dr. Katharina Prüm.
Label: Distinguished label on a classic green Schlegelflasche for Mosel Kabinett Rieslings. The neck is encircled with a thick foil with VDP highlighted in gold and the vineyard’s Sonnenuhr (sundial) logo centered, the Weingut’s name on top and the geographical indication at the bottom. This information is repeated on the main label with the addition of the vintage and the brand. The design shows JJ Prüms Winzerhaus on Uferallee 19 on the right side, the “Golden Gate'' bridge on the Mosel river and the vineyards on the left side.

I was inspired by Chef Michel Roux Jr. just by looking at the photos in his book. This South-East Asian flair salad is very simple to make (I have adjusted to my taste), but has many flavours and tastes that complement each other. The mellow flavour of cooked ginger, toasted aromatic sesame oil, the umami of soy sauce, this combination was balanced with almond butter for some sweetness. The crab salad is the crown of the ensemble. I have paired with Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett from J.J. Prüm. The Riesling married the noodles beautifully.
