Slightly subdued. Scents of red fruits and apples. Tense, concentrated palate. Apricots, orange, passionfruit and lime. Succulent and fresh. Beautifully balanced. Stimulating power. Waters Wine ’18.
More open than when I first tasted. Gorgeous nose of grapefruit, limes and spice. Very pure. Mouth filling and soft, with abundant spiced apple, guava, lychee and honey. Savoury, with smoke and minerals. Very complex and absorbing. Beautiful. WWC, January 2019.
The 2016 Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett (AP 21 17) from JJ Prum 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. 93 points, Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate #236
