Vivid and pure-tasting, with a well-structured array of mineral, peach, citrus and savory spice notes that are tightly wound. Still, this is quite airy, especially on the impeccable finish of lime and nectarine. Best from 2015 through 2038. (KM)
The Prum 2009 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese mingles spiced apple, papaya, pink grapefruit, cassis, and white raisin in a lush, creamily-textured, pungently botrytis-tinged performance full-throated from nose through peacock’s finishing flourish, and hard to beat for sheer diversity and audacity of fruit. If you’re looking for nuance of for characteristics that might be described as in any sense 'mineral,' then perhaps in a dozen years you’ll find them here, otherwise search elsewhere. But in reality this is a wine that deserves a long time in the cellar and is apt to retain and add to its present virtues over a 30 year period. (DS)
The rich, ripe flavors of apricot, mango and orange are bound together by minerality and acidity, feeling confident and tightly controlled. This already shows a subtly nuanced complexity on the palate, finishing with detailed, slate-infused aromas and fragrant length.
Soft and relatively open in style, with captivating aromas of wet mossy stones and ripe melon and hints of pear and lychee on the palate. Very approachable now for a young Prüm. (JC)
The Himmelreich has the concentration of sweet unfiltered apple must, but is lent sophistication by more than just nuances of ripe orange with juice and zest and fine marzipan. Acidity on its best behaviour, without any sharpness but a delightfully mouth-filling vibrancy. 18/20 points. (MS)
