"A Riesling with an enticing nose of honeysuckle and other summer blossoms, stone fruit and focused stony minerality. There's a wonderfully taut palate, fantastically racy and refreshing, with layers of persistent flavor intensity. The minerality stays with you all the way to a very long lingering finish." 92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"The Prum 2008 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett smells of green tea, fresh apple, honeysuckle, and acacia; offers boundless refreshment and gravity-defying buoyancy with pungent invigoration of citrus peel and apple skin; and finishes with its pure fruit and effusive, persistent inner-mouth floral perfume allied to saline, stony, smoke, iodine-like and remarkably savory manifestations of things mineral. It will reward 20-25 years of cellaring for the few who put that claim to the test â or who are already convinced by their past experience with Prum Rieslings." 91 Points - David Schildknecht - Wine Advocate
"Pure, focused and electric, with violet, black currant, peach, lime and mineral aromas and flavors. This grips your attention with its harmony and precision. There's a long aftertaste of flowers and mineral. Drink now through 2020" 91 Points - Wine Spectator
"Subtle floral aromas of peach skin and acacia blossom. Bright, slightly tart apple fruit shows a refreshing, persistent acidity. An invigorating, elegantly balanced wine with persistent slate on an appealing finish." 90 points - Joel Payne - International Wine Cellar
"A small village named Graach lies between two more-famous neighbors: Bernkastel and Wehlen. This vineyardâs steep, southwest-facing slopes and deep soils produce wines that combine the elegance of Wehlen with the rustic strength of Bernkastel. Because of the forceful minerality from the abundant blue slate in the soil, wines from Graach have excellent aging potential and will improve in the bottle for many decades." -Winery
"The J.J. PrÃ¼m wines have a reputation for being very long-lived and Dr. PrÃ¼m suggests that even his Kabinett wines ideally be cellared for five years or more, SpÃ¤tlesen and Auslesen of course longer. 20-years-old J.J.PrÃ¼m Kabinetts and SpÃ¤tlesen are still vivid, and Auslesen remain fascinating for decades, not even to speak about Beerenauslesen (BA), Trockenbeerenauslesen (TBA) and Eisweine. However, Dr. PrÃ¼m acknowledges that also a very young Kabinett, SpÃ¤tlese or Auslese can be extremely attractive â no complaint at all if such wines are savored with indulgence in their very youth already!"
"Unlike his father, who preferred to drink Auslesen and Beerenauslesen mostly, Manfred is fascinated by the whole spectrum of PrÃ¤dikate and enjoys it best to celebrate the progression, possibly with a few wine enthusiasts, starting with delicate, racy Kabinetts, continuing with slightly richer SpÃ¤tlesen and then even fuller-bodied, yet elegant Auslesen, and â in the best case - finally climaxing in an aged BA, TBA or Eiswein."
"The 55 acre estate consists of about 90% ungrafted, old vines. Holdings are in the best parts of the top Middle-Mosel sites: Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, Bernkasteler Lay and Bernkasteler Badstube. Plantings of the estate are 100 % Riesling and on steeply sloping Devon schist soil." -Importer
