Joh Jos Prum Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese GOLDKAPSEL 2011


| /

Region: Mosel
Grapes: Riesling
First Glance: Kerosene, Intense, Rich
Acclaim: 18/20

The Wine:
Petroleum is clear on the nose, and the slatey minerals have turned into a more clay like earthiness. Developed notes in the lemon/citrus space as well as beeswax and honey. Mouth coating and intense, with turbocharged power and finesse. What a joy!

The Review:
Julia Harding MW, Jancis - 18/20
“Library Release 2022. They released some bottles early but kept some back. Though Katharina Prüm still thinks this is a little too young to drink. Intoxicating and promising kerosene-like notes but just as prominent is the intense grapefruit aroma. Mouth-filling richness, the sweetness perfectly balanced by the acidity so that it flows cooly across the palate. Peach and apricot sorbet on the finish. Pure pleasure, and not as sweet-tasting as you might expect.”
