2016 Joh. Jos. Prüm Offer
2016 was an extreme year: the first half cool and damp, the second warm and dry, with a particularly sunny September, followed by a glorious October. The harvest at the estate started on 10th October, and extended to the 14th November, with a series of beautiful Auslese Goldkapsel, and a tiny quantity of Beerenauslese.
The wines are attractive and relaxed, with a pronounced minerality. Not surprisingly, their great longevity is a sure thing.

2016 BERNKASTELER BADSTUBE Kabinett (PRUM08216A)
Steely smoky notes mingle with inviting floral aromas on the nose, leading to pithy grapefruit flavours and a long lean mineral finish.
2016 GRAACHER HIMMELREICH Kabinett (PRUM10216A)
Packed with ripe white-peach fruit and a smoky dark minerality, this is balanced by vibrant citrus flavours and a long juicy finish.
2016 WEHLENER SONNENUHR Kabinett (PRUM12216A)
A magical wine ' effortless, poised and pure. This has it all: smoky pithy citrus flavours, perfumed floral notes, an abundance of white-peach fruit, astonishing finesse, and a long juicy mineral finish.
2016 GRAACHER HIMMELREICH Spätlese (PRUM20216A)
Smooth, rich and vibrant, this has delightfully elegant floral and white-peach flavours interwoven with dark mineral notes. There is a long energetic juicy finish.
2016 WEHLENER SONNENUHR Spätlese (PRUM22216A)
Charm itself: transparent, pure and effortless, each element stands out clearly and combines in a harmonious whole. It is perfumed, floral and playful, with a zinging creamy minerality that makes it taste almost dry. Quite lovely.
2016 ZELTINGER SONNENUHR Auslese (PRUM28216A)
2016 GRAACHER HIMMELREICH Auslese (PRUM30216A)
Magical poise and bags of energy on this vibrant, dense and elegant wine. There is ripe pure yellow plum and pithy grapefruit, lemon-tinged acidity and a smoky melting minerality on a long, powerful finish.
2016 WEHLENER SONNENUHR Auslese (PRUM32216A)
All things to all men: delightful ease and charm, but also serious depth and complexity. There is white peach and hints of riper tropical fruit, vibrant citrus acidity and a hugely intense smoky minerality that keeps the wine focussed, pure, and tasting almost dry. It is effortless, ethereal, and while delicious now, will provide pleasure for many decades. (Did I mention that I liked it')
2016 GRAACHER HIMMELREICH Auslese Goldkapsel (PRUM38216A)
The pure light botrytis gives a smooth character to this ripe and rounded wine. There is appealing golden yellow fruit, and it is intense, balanced and poised, ending on a delightfully smoky mineral note.
2016 BERNKASTELER LAY Auslese Goldkapsel (PRUM39216A)
We are seeing more bottlings of this vineyard recently, which was previously blended into the Badstube. This is a good thing, as it produces very fine wines of individuality and character. The south-facing slope gives ripe wines, this year with a lovely pure botrytis that lends a creamy note to rich fruit and smoky minerality, and there is beautiful balance and intensity on the long finish.
