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.
The bigger, thicker, broader 2001 Riesling Spatlese Graacher Himmelreich is the masculine, broad-shouldered brother of the feminine, elegant Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese. White chocolate, sage, smoky minerals, and poached pears can be found in its rich aromas. Medium-bodied, velvety-textured, and soft, it is a large, dense offering with copious quantities of poached pear, slate, gun flint, candied lemon and red currant flavors. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020. (PR)
J.J. Prüm remains one of the masters. The complexity built into this wine is astounding: white peaches, melon, green apples, grapefruit, traces of minerals and nuts—all on a lithe frame that beautifully supports the fruit.
With its aromas of apple and vanilla, I guessed this to be a Wehlener. Glossy in texture and honeyed in flavor, it shows a hint of white raisin but also juicy citricity and snap and sap to its apple fruit. A vintage-typical spiciness adds further interest. (DS)
