    Winemaker's Notes:

    This vibrant, elegant and classical Graacher Himmelreich Spätlese shows an appealing interplay between a pronounced minerality, crisp acidity and fine fruit aromas and flavours. More ageing will result into even more harmony and finesse.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very racy and powerful, with lots of mineral and sea salt notes to the fresh and vibrant flavors of nectarine and lemon-lime. Pure and long on the finish, with hints of licorice and savory herb. Best from 2012 through 2022. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

    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.

    The Wine Advocate

    This shows precocious charm, its ripe flavors of white peach and fresh apple incisive, pungent and pure. Harmonious from beginning to end, this demonstrates a silky finesse and subtly detailed length.

    Wine & Spirits

    This wine shows terrific complexity at this young age, with spicy notes akin to musk, dusty notes akin to crushed stone and plenty of underlying fruit. It's stony yet sweet, lush yet crisp. A trifle heavier than expected, it finishes long, with savory-briny notes. Might this rating seem conservtive in 5–10 years?
