Joh. Jos. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This classical Auslese is an excellent example of an elegant Mosel Riesling Auslese. It shows a fascinating interplay between crispy fruit aromas and flavors, an expressive minerality and a fine acidity. This wine has a long ageing potential and will develop even more harmony and finesse in the years to come.

J.J. Prüm is a member of the Großer Ring Verband Deutscher Prädikats- und Qualitätsweingüter. The estate has 14 acres of holdings in the Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Bernkasteler Lay, Bernkasteler Badstube and Zeltinger Sonnenuhr vineyards. Only Riesling is grown and harvested at these sites. The most important of these sites are Wehlener Sonnenuhr and Graacher Himmelreich, in terms of both quantity and quality for the winery. Seventy percent of the vines are ungrafted. Depending on the vintage, the average annual production is 10,000 to 13,000 cases of wine. Stuart Pigott says of J.J. Prum that "since the early 1920's its wines have been among Germany’s best Rieslings with the Mosel’s vivacious aroma and racy elegance in its highest form". Wine writer Stephen Brook says that "The wines, whether a modest Kabinett or an opulent Beerenauslese, are the epitome of filigree elegance: light in body but intense in flavour, exquisitely balanced and precisely tuned, and capable of the most extra-ordinary longevity".  Read less

Racy, with a tightly wound core of fresh-cut apple and grapefruit flavors that vibrate with acidity. The long finish is very crisp and clean. Drink now through 2024. -KM Wine Spectator. A Riesling wine from Mosel Saar Ruwer in Germany. 2010 Prum, Joh Jos Riesling Kabinett 750ml

Lemon, pineapple, and blackcurrant site-typically scent the Prum 2010 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spatlese and are then projected onto a palate underlain with wet stone. A faintly smoky, prickly aura of reduction doesn't preclude one relishing this... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Elegant and ethereal, with mouthwatering acidity behind the fresh-cut apple, cinnamon and ripe pear flavors. Shows lots of glazed apricot notes as well, with a vibrant finish that oozes creaminess and minerality. Mouthwatering. Drink now through 2035... Wine Spectator.
