Joh. Jos. Prum Riesling Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett 2014

External Review by Wine Gems @ Perriello's:

Mosel, GermanyWine Spectator 92, Wine Advocate 90+Joh. Jos. Prum Riesling Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett is a beautiful dry Riesling from this world-renowned producer in the Mosel region of Germany. From Johann Josef to Sebastian to Manfred-and now, to Katharina-the hereditary line of Prms at this estate is straight and strong. Why is J.J. Prm still the most famous name in German wine after a hundred years? Partly because their light and racy wines epitomize the region, partly because they possess several incredible vineyard sites and an extraordinary percentage of ungrafted vines within them, which links them to an historic era of German winegrowing. They are simply the quintessential Mosel estate and the benchmark for all German wine. Graacher Himmelreich: very deep soils (great water maintenance); weathered Devon slate with higher clay content and pockets of blue slate. Wines are usually approachable sooner than Sonnenuhr."A racy and intense white, showing white berry, apple and lemon-lime flavors, with fresh minerality. Rich notes of rose petal, dried mint and chamomile emerge on the crunchy finish. Drink now through 2021. 700 cases imported.-KM, Wine Spectator 92 pointsEnjoy Joh. Jos. Prum Riesling Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett over the next 15-18 years. From spicy Asian cuisine to tangy Arab cuisine to fine young raw milk cheeses, it can create plenty of suspense as an accompaniment.

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
