J J Prum Graacher Himmel Spat 2012
Located in the Middle Mosel Valley, one of the most northern wine-growing regions in the world, the estate of J.J. Prüm totals 22 hectares. Such cool climate conditions allows for late-harvesting, which enables the grapes to develop their fruity, floral and herbal aromas. Slate soils provide great minerality and the estate's use of wild yeast and late bottling allows for a full expression of the mostly ungrafted, old vines of the vineyard. They are currently one of only nine wine estates in Germany ranked five stars by Gault Millau, which is the European wine world's equivalent to the Michelin guide. Their Rieslings are renowned for their aging potential and are highly sought after by collectors.
External Reviews for J J Prum Graacher Himmel Spat
Crunchy yet nicely fleshed out, with good cut to the citrus and mineral notes that accent the apple and grapefruit flavors. Features firm acidity and a finish that echoes with ripe melon hints. Drink now through 2018.
Subtle floral bouquet with peach skin and acacia blossom. Bright, slightly tart apple with a refreshing, persistent acidity. This invigorating wine has an appealing finish.
A tightly coiled seam of mineral slatey-ness and tangy grip keeps the stunning package of concentrated stone fruits, pastilles, smoke, pungent citrus and white florals, all tightly woven and ravishingly refreshing. It's an Auslese for the ages, so much so that you could fill a room with this wine's ambition.
Excellent structure, ripe aromas and flavors of stone fruits (like peach), a fine minerality, great depth and length. Unique harmony, finesse and expression after aging. Fine, yet racy with elegance and complexity. Beautiful balance between fine minerality, crisp acidity, expressive fruit aromas and flavors.
