While Pruuml;m is renowned for his wines from the Wehlener Sonnenuhr, this Auslese demonstrated that the wines from the neighboring vineyard of Graacher Himmelreich can be equally as refined. This is creamy in texture and tone, its plush flavors of apricot and white peach backed by a savory minerality. The firm acidity keeps it feeling racy and fresh, with an intensely slatey minerality turning more prominent on the finish.

The Prum 2009 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese mingles spiced apple, papaya, pink grapefruit, cassis, and white raisin in a lush, creamily-textured, pungently botrytis-tinged performance full-throated from nose through peacockrsquo;s finishing flourish, and hard to beat for sheer diversity and audacity of fruit. If yoursquo;re looking for nuance of for characteristics that might be described as in any sense ldquo;mineral,rdquo; then perhaps in a dozen years yoursquo;ll find them here, otherwise search elsewhere. But in reality this is a wine that deserves a long time in the cellar and is apt to retain and add to its present virtues over a 30 year period.

Vivid and pure-tasting, with a well-structured array of minerals, peach, citrus and savory spice notes that are tightly wound. Still, this is quite airy, especially on the impeccable finish of lime and nectarine. Best from 2015 through 2038.

Pale golden yellow. Subdued bouquet of passion fruit, nut oil and acacia blossom. The lusciously sweet tropical fruit flavors are highlighted by a refreshing gingery acidity that keeps the palate light in spite of the wineandrsquo;s density. Although elegant and aristocratic, this auslese is also quite full-bodied, finishing astoundingly long, on a spicy botrytis note.

Aromas of ripe pineapple and spice seem to jump out of the glass. The drinker of this wine will be rewarded with a complex, mouthfilling combination of well defined ripe pinepple that seems to stay on the palate forever before the flavors finally trail off into spice and slate on the finish. This bottle provides a shining example of why the wines of J.J. Prum are among the highest quality and most ageworthy in all of Germany.

Cask sample. Beautiful, fresh, crushed grape character which is lively and refreshing. Medium-bodied with medium sweetness and a long fresh finish. Drinkable now.
