"Complex, featuring apricot, passion fruit and lime pÃ¢te de fruit, slate and smoke aromas and flavors. Intense, yet light on its feet, this is well-integrated and lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2032." 94 Points - Wine Spectator
"The Prum 2007 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese Gold Capsule smells so intensely of pink grapefruit, mint, and cassis that â I pray the Prums will forgive this inevitable if sacrilegious comparison! â I imagine Scheurebe. Honey and caramel on the creamy, delicate palate offer counterpoint with the wineâs luscious citrus and cooling, invigorating herbal notes. In conclusion, this practically explodes with a shower of citrus, herbal essences, salt, and crushed stone."
"The characteristics of great Riesling from the Prum estate coincide with one of the most striking virtues of 2007 Mosel Rieslings in general, namely the ability to combine intensity of aroma and flavor with delicacy, and caressing richness with vivacity. In a sense, the best wines in this yearâs collection are like Prum-squared in their distinctiveness and expressivity. Manfred Prum acknowledges good reasons for the widespread comparison of 2007 with 2004, and thinks the present vintage also shares the richness of 2005."-94 Points - David Schildknecht - The Wine Advocate
"Seems a bit cleaner on the nose than its counterpart from the Sonnenuhr, with slightly sweaty notes but also mouthwatering honey and pineapple aromas. This is full, rich and mouthcoating, offering up complex flavors of melon, honey and musky spices that linger elegantly on the finish. Should evolve at least through 2030." 94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"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
