2020 Joh Jos Prum Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spatlese
The 2020er Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spätlese offers a quite rich and even slightly ripe nose of almond cream and bakery products as well as honeyed yellow peach, William’s pear, apricot, and anise, all wrapped into smoky and refined elements. The wine coats the palate with ample and sweet fruits, which give a smoother and ampler structure to the wine. The finish has however more presence and intensity, but still needs to integrate its tale of initial sweetness. This clearly has some upside potential as it gains finesse and elegance over time. Drink 2028-2045.
Jean Fisch & David Rayer - Mosel Fine Wines
Quite fumey, with a bit more obvious SO2 influence than the Kabinett version – as one might expect. Glorious panoply of flavours on the front palate. This is already lovely to drink! Great balance and charm. Perfect tightrope balance between fruit and acidity. Crunchy, long finish. Beautiful already. Drink 2021-2035.
