Apricot pit, lime zest and clove on the nose. The delicate nectarine fruit and creamy texture are held aloft by nutmeg and mineral salts. Finishes bright, lively and satisfying, with a spicy character provided by the slate. -Joel Payne Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Max Gerstl: Ein sinnliches Fruchtelixier in der Nase, geht schon stark in Richtung Tropenfrucht, Ananas, Mango, Papaya, da ist auch schon ganz zart ein Hauch sehr saubere Botrytis im Spiel sowie eine erfrischende Spur Minze. Der Duft ist von zauberhafter Schönheit. Was für ein raffinierter Wein am Gaumen, wirkt im Antrunk wunderbar weich und zartschmelzend, um dann aber gleich auch seine rassige Struktur in den Mittelpunkt zu stellen, was für ein traumhaftes Trinkerlebnis, irgendwie sehe ich wieder diesen imposanten Berg vor mir, wo dieser sensationelle Wein gewachsen ist, dieser verwitterte Schiefer, wo der Wein seine Mineralität hernimmt, nur so lässt sich dieses Naturereignis erklären, das auch im Glas stattfindet.

This classical Graacher Himmelreich Auslese is an excellent example of an elegant Mosel Riesling Auslese. Although still very young, it already 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.

Max Gerstl: Der Strahlt eine Mineralität aus, die schon fast in Richtung Feuerstein geht, sensationell für einen edelsüssen Jungwein, daneben ist auch jede Menge feinster Frucht, erfrischende Zitrusfrucht und zarte hochreife gelbe Früchte. Am Gaumen vereint er die Kraft einer Auslese mit der Rasse eines Kabinett und wird dadurch zur perfekten Spätlese, das ist eine geniale Graacher Spätlese, die für einmal sogar die Wehlener in den Schatten stellt, die daneben steht, was für ein fröhlicher, die Sinne berauschender Wein, irgendwie ein frecher Kerl, aber auf sehr charmante Art, ein intellektueller Charakterwein.

Max Gerstl: Feine, glasklare, präzise Frucht, Aprikose, Pfirsich, dazu ein Hauch Tropenfrucht, feine Würze. Ein Knaller am Gaumen da ist pure Rasse, aber auch Fülle und eine sinnliche Aromatik, sehr klassischer, absolut perfekter sinnlicher Kabinett, das ist Trinkvergnügen vom Feinsten, wow, ist das ein herrlicher Wein, was will man viel mehr sagen als: der ist schlicht und einfach unendlich gut.

Winemaker's Notes:

Extremely bright in aroma as well as palate impression, the Prums' 2008 Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Kabinett is dominated by lemon and grapefruit, with village typical cherry and cassis manifesting themselves as an invigorating chew of fruit skin that is delightfully complimented by estate-typical impingement of CO2. Lush yet light, this finishes with not only blazing brightness but a cress-like pungency and strikingly intense salinity and suggestions of wet stone, making your palate stand to attention, wide awake! Plan on following it for a couple of decades, although, unlike many Joh. Jos. Prum wines, I find it (and many of the estate's 2008s) downright irresistible already.
