joh jos prum, graacher himmelreich riesling spatlese, mosel 2014
Rich, creamy and full of a lively savoriness matched to flavors of fresh-cut green apple, tangerine, mocha and spice. The lush finish offers white chocolate accents. Drink now through 2034.
Savory whiffs of earth and pollen belie the bounty of luscious tangerine and stone fruit flavors that await on the palate of this delicate spätlese. It's juicy and thirst quenching yet subtle, nuanced by hits of struck flint and salt. Gossamer-fine texture and bristling acidity lend tautness. It's delicious now but should gain depth and definition through 2025.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Ripe tropical fruit aromas such as pineapples and mangoes mingle with coolish stone and smoky aromas on the 2014 Riesling Graacher Himmelreich Spätlese; this leads to a sweet and piquant palate, with charming fruitiness and concentration. This wine is precise, pure and piquant, revealing a lot of salty stones on the palate, bright fruit flavors and a long,complex finish--again with white peach and nectarine flavors, and a persistent salinity. Great Spätlese.
