'Ripe but perfectly balanced. Precise and persistent.'

  • 'Few estates in the world can claim to have maintained the highest quality standards uninterrupted for half a century and more.  Joh Jos Prüm, the most famous of the many Mosel wine estates bearing the Prüm name, is one estate that can.  Since the early 1920’s its wines have been among Germany’s best Rieslings with the Mosel’s vivacious aroma and racy elegance in its highest form.'
    Stuart Pigott, The Wine Atlas of Germany.


    Graacher Himmelreich directly borders the southern edge of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard. The wines from this site often often challenge those from its more famous neighbor, especially in hot, dry years. Graacher wines  attract with their racy acidity, a pronounced minerality (reminiscent of crushed rock) and slightly different fruit aromas and flavours (more in the citrus spectrum). Often, the wines become accessible slightly earlier than the Wehlener Sonnenuhr and are deliciously mouth-watering when young. Looking at the vineyard conditions, the hill faces slightly more westwards than the  Wehlener Sonnenuhr , i.e. it has a more south-west exposure, it is a little less steep and has deeper soils which act as excellent water reservoirs. 


    'The 2016 Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett is deep, cool and flinty on the nose, pretty mineral though still a bit reductive. Round, intense and juicy, this is a densely woven Kabinett with ripe nectarine and plummy flavors as well as a tightly woven and refreshing mineral structure. The finish is pretty persistent and extremely stimulating. Compared to the Badstube, the Himmelreich is more aromatic and expressive.'

    'Very youthful, but brimming with white fruits and minerals. This is easy to enjoy right now. However, in the background of this sleek beauty, there's a note of wet stones that grows through the long and cool finish. Drink or hold.'

    'Characteristic Prüm smoky wild-ferment and apparently reductive aromas. Then on the palate, really pretty and peachy with fabulous acid structure though the fruit clothes it most elegantly. Ripe but perfectly balanced. Precise and persistent.'
