91 points Wine Spectator: "Elegant, packed with slate, vanilla, lime and apple aromas and flavors. A touch reduced in aroma, but lively and intense, with a lip-smacking finish. Best from 2012 through 2024." (11/09) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's IWC: "Apricot pit, lime zest and clove on the nose. The delicate nectarine fruit and creamy texture are held aloft by nutmeg and mineral salts. Finishes bright, lively and satisfying, with a spicy character provided by the slate." (Jan/Feb 10) Just upstream from the famed Wehlener Sonnenuhr is the Graacher Himmelreich. With deeper, richer soils, this site is a little less steep and its south-west exposure ensures the wines from this site always have a racy and juicy acid background that really make the wines sing. The 2008 vintage at the Joh Jos Prum estate provided yet another fantastic vintage for Kabinett and Spatlese level wines, with a small amount of Auslese as well. The wines of the 2008 vintage are showing vibrant and juicy acidity levels with bright and expressive aromatics and flavor profiles. They seem to a bit more wound up and tighter than the '07s and may need a bit more time in bottle to show what they really have to offer. It is an elegant and attractive vintage highlighting the Kabinett and Spatleses with lighter, sleeker and more charming versions of Auslese.
