- Outstanding Winemaker
- From the Mosel region
- Fragrant, suductive and absolutely delicous!
This vineyard offers a strong sense of slate and dark stones on the nose: very gentle sulphides here, ripe stone fruits and a spicy nuance, some herbal notes too. The palate is beautifully balanced - a hall mark of the '09 Prum Spatlese wines. Delicious fresh apple and white nectarine flavours here, gently honeyed through the finish
Pink grapefruit, banana, cassis and lily perfume announce the extreme ripeness of fruit that informed the Prums' 2009 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spatlese. Juicy and extroverted on the palate, it packs a sense of sassy brightness that perfectly compliments any tendency toward extravagant or over-indulgent ripeness. As to your being over-indulgent by drinking some, I'd say, "yes, you would be - fortunately." I see no need to wait for a half dozen years to approach this. On the other hand, if you wait 25, this wine will still be waiting for you and in good shape.
