Joh. Jos. Prüm Riesling Kabinett Graacher Himmelreich 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The wine shows plenty of incipient apricot fruit in the nose and mouth, followed by pear and grapefruit. Then there is pure sizzle juice! Ripe, snappy pineapple, lime, red fruit and peach finish the experience. Food Affinity: Great to enjoy on its own, but also great with salads and light dishes such as seafood, light poultry and sushi.

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
