External Reviews for Joh. Jos. Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese Mosel
Elegant aromas of Bing cherry, apple blossom and roasted pine nuts. Sweet, delicate and nonetheless creamy on the palate, with sweet herbs and a touch of vanilla. Lemon curd and slate animate this serious spandauml;tleseandrsquo;s compelling finish.
Some of Pranduuml;mandrsquo;s releases in this decade have been more fruit-forward and less overtly yeasty than in the past, but this wine feels like a Pranduuml;m Spandauml;tlese of old: tightly restrained and stubbornly closed behind a wall of youthful fermentation aromas, it takes its time to reveal subtle detail and silky depth of fruit. Itandrsquo;s infused by the haunting blue-slate character for which the vineyard is renowned, and white it undoubtedly packs more richness and ripeness than a Pranduuml;m wine of 20 years ago, it maintains a similar feeling of delicacy, purity and grace.
The Prum 2007 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spandauml;tlese is intriguingly- as well as gorgeously-scented with peony, narcissus, heliotrope, mint, and fresh apple. Creamy and buoyant on the palate, it caresses and seduces with suggestions of lemon chiffon and vanilla flan, but then leaves a surprisingly adamant, stony, subtly zesty finish as if to put the taster on notice that there is a lot more here than meets the palate at such a youthful juncture.
Filled to the brim with fresh fruit. Truly exciting, bubbling with fresh peach and honeysuckle aromas. Medium-bodied and sweet, overflowing with apple and peach flavors and a long, fresh finish. Try from 1994.
Impressive aromas of fruit and earth. Medium-bodied and medium sweet, with ripe fruit flavors and a moderate finish. A bit rustic. Drink now.
Wine Tasting NotesBrilliant wine, as always from this address, and an example of classic Mosel Riesling. Forward in style. Intensely aromatic and bursting with herb, peach, lime and slate notes riding a firm, focused structure and creamy texture. Beautifully put together and long on the finish. Best from 2008 through 2025.
A decadent style, with tropical fruit flavors of mango and guava that drip with plenty of butter and spice notes. A rich anise and glazed apricot strain runs through the aroma to the finish. Distinctive and powerful. Drink now through 2025.
