2005 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling, Auslese, Joh. Jos. Prüm, Mosel

The nose is dominated by the perfume of ripe nectarines. Nectarine is present on the palate too plus peach with wave upon wave of gloriously ripe tropical fruits. I cannot recall tasting a more compelling Himmelreich than this. Utterly beautiful! Sweetness is allied to tingling acidity that has one salivating for more. Very high class, the flavours go on and on and build to a thrilling crescendo.

2005 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling, Auslese, Joh. Jos. Prüm, Mosel
Weingut Joh. Jos. Prüm

JJ Prüm is perhaps one of the most iconic producers in the Mosel, likely due to both their easily-recognisable label as well as their presence in a number of the best sites in the region. While many domaines boast centuries of production, JJ Prüm was set up in 1911 when Sebastian Alois Prüm inherited the vineyards that formed the basis of what his son Sebastian and later grandson Manfred would build into this world-class winery. These are wines likely to be found on the best wine lists around the world, and often much older vintages given that they are bottled later than most, and age with the very, very best.
