Joh. Jos. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett Riesling 2016
Winemaker Notes :
Despite its still youthful freshness it shows the fine fruity Riesling characteristic and an underlying hint of mineral from the blue/grey Devonian slate soil.
Serve this refreshing wine slightly chilled! As aperitif and, especially when more matured, in combination with seafood or poultry.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett (AP 21 17) is deep, cool and flinty on the nose, pretty mineral though still a bit reductive. Round, intense and juicy, this is a densely woven Kabinett with ripe nectarine and plummy flavors as well as a tightly woven and refreshing mineral structure. The finish is pretty persistent and extremely stimulating. Compared to the Badstube, the Himmelreich is more aromatic and expressive. Tasted in March 2017.
Wine SpectatorSeductive, with floral and mineral elements, and nectarine and custard aromas and flavors that interchange on the vibrant frame, underscored by bright acidity. Precise and pure, with a light feel and a long, vanilla-tinged aftertaste.
VinousScents and juicy generosity of mint-tinged and honeysuckle-garlanded fresh apple and black currant are allied to a polished, glossy, buoyant palate presence, leading to a lusciously sustained, delicate finish tinged with crystalline stony inflections. The sweetness here is totally supportive and entirely discreet. This is one of those Kabinetts one seems to inhale in the finish, with floral perfume and wet stone prominent, and only sheer refreshment reminds you of its fluid nature.
