Joh Jos Prum Riesling Auslese Graacher 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

95 pts -Wine SpectatorSlightly reduced in aroma, yet very pure and delicate, showing apple and peach notes, with a touch of herb and mineral. Gossamer in texture, with a spine of acidity, ending with a mouthwatering finish. Needs time. Best from 2010 through 2030.

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

Pure and delicate, yet strong mineral and florals on the nose. Showing nice apple and peach notes and good mineral mixed in. Delicious and well balanced. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 4/10/10
