A Festive Mosel

It's at this time of year that people start asking me about what wines to have with their Christmas dinner.This can be a tricky one as if you're going for a traditional Christmas turkey you don't want a full bodied red as it will dominate the more subtle flavours of the white meat. Obviously when choosing a wine for the meal you also have to consider the rest of the plate which is usually populated with the robust flavours of gravy and roasted veg so you need a wine with some body and a strong character of its own to stand up to these more rugged elements.

This is where a good dry Riesling comes in. It has all of the body and intensity of flavour required to match with pretty much and cuisine as well as a unique texture which further enhances its adaptability as a great food wine. it is robust without being overpowering and this is what makes it such a perfect partner to the classic Christmas roast!

This is also a wine with great pedigree as the producers, the Prüm family have been making wine in the Mosel since 1156, with S A Prüm establishing the current site of the winery in the late 18th Century. Today, Raimond Prüm - the great great grandson of the Winery's namesake - runs the winery with his daughter Saskia and has overseen the modernisation of the estate since 1971. The resulting wines are testament to the centuries of experience and the forward thinking of the current incumbents. Long may the Riesling renaissance continue.
