Riesling Gka Graacher Himmelreich Jj Prum 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Golden yellow. Rich, smoky aromas of dried apricot, baked apple and white raisins. Sumptuous papaya fruit texture with the weight of honey-glazed botrytis is elevated by an ethereal minerality. Complex brown spices on the impressively long finish. One of the three finest ausleses of the vintage..98" IWC 01/12

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

Rich and powerful, with concentrated flavors of dried apricot, pear, apple pastry and mango. Key lime and meringue emerge on the refined structure, and this finishes with honeydew melon, savory herb and smoke. Drink now through 2035. -KM Wine Spectator.

Fruit-driven aromas of white peach and apricot are lifted by a floral element and a hint of spicy botrytis. The rich, creamy, sweet tropical fruits are given shape and lift by bracing minerality.

Pale golden straw color with flecks of green. This has a sleek, taught, mineral-driven nose, loaded with yellow peach, apricot, green apple, as well as notes of lime, chamomile, wet stone and saline.

Elegant and ethereal, with mouthwatering acidity behind the fresh-cut apple, cinnamon and ripe pear flavors. Shows lots of glazed apricot notes as well, with a vibrant finish that oozes creaminess and minerality. Mouthwatering. Drink now through 2035... Wine Spectator.
