Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett Riesling 2019

My first time trying one of the hotly anticipated 2019s from J. J. Prüm, this being the Kabinett from the Himmelreich vineyard in Graach. 2019 was a hot vintage which benefited from cooler temperatures and rain towards harvest in September, tempering already high sugars in many of the grapes. A degree of the crop had been lost both through hail in Spring and sunburn in August. Nevertheless, 2019 has been lauded as the vintage of the century, drawing comparisons to 2016 Bordeaux, among others - and is especially successful at the drier end of the classification. So, how does this wine from the Kabinett Prädikat fare?

It’s a featherlight Riesling, often the mark of this estate in any given vintage, but while airy and graceful, there’s tremendous intensity to the palate, great persistence and a very long finish. A touch reticent at this stage, but that doesn’t fully hinder the aromas of orange marmalade, white peach, blueberry, juniper and tomato vine,

Aaand my notes ended there - perhaps I was enjoying it too much 🫠😅 either way, this was a knockout Kabi!

I thought 2015 was the vintage of the century, but likely the goalposts are always moving forward...Marketing.

I think the positive notes you used to describe this wine are the same attributes that I think make 2019 a superb vintage for German riesling. The wines I have tried have been “airy, graceful, beautiful with intensity and persistence.” I think that describes the vintage character perfectly 👍

Quite young and forward, but also classic Prum in it's ethereal elegance and balance. Floral, peach, some tropical notes, and classic slate. Still a youngster. — 2 years ago
