Joh. Jos. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel 2012

External Review:

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.

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

Very rich, but at the same time well-structured and not at all fat' Auslese. Very good interplay betweenfloral flavors, mineral acidity and citrus aromas. This Auslese is still less developed compared to theSpatlese, will improve remarkably when opening further in the course of the next years. Great ageingpotential.
