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!

Lime zest, limestone, agave, bright acidity. Always good with sushi.

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! 🥂🥂🥂🥂
