Joh. Jos. Prüm Riesling Spätlese Graacher Himmelreich 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Rich, but at the same time well-structured and elegant, harmonious Auslese. Very appealing interplay between minerality, floral, fruity and herbal flavors and citrus aromas. Very good aging potential.

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

Apricot pit, lime zest and clove on the nose. The delicate nectarine flavor atnd creamy texture are held aloft by nutmeg and mineral salts. Bright and lively sp atlese, with a slate element providing lift to the satisfying finish Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Lemon, pineapple, and blackcurrant site-typically scent the Prum 2010 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spatlese and are then projected onto a palate underlain with wet stone. A faintly smoky, prickly aura of reduction doesn't preclude one relishing this... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
