Weingut Joh. Jos. Prum Mosel Graacher Hirmmelreich Riesling 2003
Gorgeous bouquet of green apple, vanilla, and showing floral notes. Palate is smooth as silk! Flavors of pear and honey dominate, leading into a long velvety finish. Excellent wine! 93pts. Tasted 04/15/13
100% Riesling grown on solid blue slate from the steeply sloped Wehlener Sonnenuhr (sundial) vineyard. Star bright straw yellow color with very faint legs. Pronounced aromatic intensity of ripe peach, apricot, quince, pineapple and mango, with hints of orange blossom. Plenty of minerality present especially wet stone and the ever present petrol along with honey, almonds and allspice. High mouthwatering acidity, long medium sweet finish, medium + flavor intensity, medium bodied, well balanced, complex, and very good quality. I really enjoyed this wine and would love to have some spicy Asian food like Thai or Schezuan cooking to balance out the sweetness of this wine. Definitely a winner for me. 4/5
Four and a half glasses

A white with rosebush and citrus character. Medium-bodied and lightly sweet, with lively acidity and a long, flavorful finish. Drink now.
Wow. This '97 Auslese almost overpowers the sensory receptors with its succulent, pure aromas and flavors of peach, apple and slate, rapierlike acidity and brilliant clarity. But it's never too much, as it remains balanced and harmonious all the way through. Drink now through 2010.
My instincts suggest that those willing to wait 10andndash;12 years will find an outstanding wine when they open the 2003 Riesling Spandauml;tlese Graacher Himmelreich yet, at present, it does not reveal the depth required to merit such an exalted score. Light to medium-bodied, it displays a broad, supple personality filled with creamy stones, slate, and smoke. Projected maturity: 2014andndash;2024.
The 2003 Riesling Auslese Wehlener Sonnenuhr displays hints of minerals lurking below its wafts of sulfur. A seamless, creamy-textured wine, it is easygoing, plump, and exhibits flavors reminiscent of poached pears, cotton candy, and sweet minerals. Drink it between 2010 and 2020.
Subtle bouquet of gooseberry and nut oil, with a trace of something floral. On the palate the creamy nectarine fruit is counterpointed by citrus and slate. The long finish blends spices and mineral salts.
Quince preserves, baked apple, lily, gardenia, and hints of caramel and vanilla mark the nose of the Prüm 2007 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese. With richness yet delicacy and lift it saturates the palate with rich fruit, liquid flowers, vanilla cream, and savory, saline, shrimp shell reduction-like mineral essences. This intense, pure, subtly and truly nobly botrytized Auslese has umami with a capital "U."
A fantastic spätlese. Rich, succulent and harmonious, boasting peach, citrus and mineral aromas and flavors, all pure and displayed with finesse on a well-integrated structure. It picks up a creaminess and vanilla note on the endless finish. Drink now through 2020.
