A wine with a long life ahead of it from an excellent vineyard, producer, and vintage. This extremely famous estate comprises 33 acres of mostly ungrafted vines. They harvest very late, a risky practice but one that can have fabulous results.


Winemaker's Notes:

"The Prum 2009 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett features grapefruit and cassis with the bitterness of grapefruit rind as well as hints of stone and salt offering counterpoint. This displays marginally less juiciness (especially in its finish) or sense of lift than the corresponding Badstube or Sonnenuhr Kabinetts, but still refreshing, satisfyingly ripe, and well-balanced. Manfred Prum opines that this is suffering more from bottling than most of his other young 2009s, pointing out that usually Himmelreich is earliest to recover. I would expect this wine to follow a strong track record and thrive for at least 12-15 years. " WA 12/10
