S.A. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Spatlese Riesling 2009
Riesling from Mosel, Germany
The color is a bright, vibrant gold with green reflections. The bouquet is of stone fruit (such as white peaches, apricots), lemon, pineapple.
On the palate are stone fruit flavors that round out a full-bodied, balanced, exquisite wine with distinct mineral and flint nuances.
Delicious with lobster, shrimp and spicy Thai-style dishes, as well as blue cheeses, creamy cheeses, apple pie and fresh fruit
Aromatic, showing lilac, freesia and violet notes, followed by baked apple, black currants and slate flavors. Elegant and tightly wound, with a racy structure well-fused to the rich texture. The appealing aftertaste features notes of candied berries and mineral.
This plump creamy-textured spatlese displays ample minerality – there’s a distinctly slate-driven note – allied to ripe apple, stone fruit and citrus. Sweet but not overwhelmingly so, this would be terrific with slightly sweet or spicy dishes.
