Joh. Jos. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett 2012


SKU 8274551644


Graacher wines attract with their racy acidity, a pronounced minerality (that reminds of crushed rock) and slightly different fruit aromas and flavours (more in the citrus spectrum). Often, the wines become accessible slightly earlier than the Wehlener Sonnenuhr and are deliciously mouth-watering when young.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett (AP #02 14) is one of just three Kabinett wines of the vintage (Estate and Badstube are the other two). With spring-like aromas of white fruits and flinty slate flavors, it opens bright and clear like a prelude from Johann Sebastian Bach on the nose. Very delicate, light, piquant and absolutely stimulating on the palate, this filigreed yet firmly structured and persistently salty wine is absolutely delicious!

Wine SpectatorFresh and minerally, with good cut to the Gala apple, melon and ripe peach flavors, filled with a vibrant creaminess. Open-textured, with a finish that lingers with notes of slate. Complex. Drink now through 2020.
