Nose has citrus and an emerging something inorganic that I can’t quite pinpoint (petrol? Rubber? Asphalt?) as I don’t spend much time seeking out those kind of smells. Palate is feather light and tingly, sweet peach and apricot and lime up front followed by a hint of the herbal and savory. Will let the next one rest a while longer — 16 days ago
Wednesday night and tonight's wine is the 2019 Joh. Jos Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett Riesling.
On the nose there is honey, green apple, lime, pear, apricote, rubber bicycle tire and flint stone.
On the palate there is green apple, lime, lemon, minerality, orange peel, honey and a bit of salinity.
This wine is medium bodied with a viscous texture that is a bit sweet but not overly so and high acidity that moves into a long citrus minerality finish. I hope everyone is doing well staying safe and healthy. Have a great rest of the week. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 2 months ago
Earthy, sappy and smokey notes are the defining characteristics of this Auslese, my first time trying this style. Certainly too young but highly aromatic nonetheless, with candied pear, clementine, lime zest, bergamot, exotic spices and doubtless plenty of other things I’m not yet experienced enough to pick up! The palate is lithe and crunchy, not at all sticky and only really medium bodied. It’s gorgeous, and finishes with good length. This will of course age effortlessly, but right now it’s superb with a Goan prawn curry full of coconut milk. — 2 months ago
Nose is some baked apple, slate, minerals and a nice layered aspect. Confectionary and really nice. Lovely. Palate is sweet, tense and compact. Good freshness. Very pure. Nice icing on cake texture. Almost a 9.1. Again, tho, seems boring. Does the job type of wine. Like a great long snapper. — 10 days ago

Lovely wine! I guess I would have appreciated a little more acididi to balance the sweetness even further. But hey! Loads o lime n lemon, along some tropix. Little mineral n a sturdy fruity sweetness. — 2 months ago
Nose has lime slice, dried apricots, yeasty dough, soap powder and dried white flowers.
Palate has honey drizzle over dried orange, salted lime wedge, ripe apricot, dehydrated apple slice, lime peel and mineral water with lively acidity. Great bottle.
A young wine still, could expect this bottle to run out another 15+ years in proper storage.
24 Hour Update:
Nose transitioned to dried lime, but that soap powder piece is quite nice. Palate is still holding true. — a month ago

One of my very favourite wines. Disappointed on first glass - just seemed pale and dilute, not very interesting, but showed much better on second night and now on third night it’s totally singing with a richness and sweetness that’s built massively since being opened. Pure and concentrated apricot and peach profile. A little too sweet currently, but I’d expect that to fade over time. I buy this every year and really enjoy seeing them evolve over years. — 2 months ago
