2017 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese [12 18] (PRUM30217A)
An unusually high proportion of botrytis - around 30% - gives this a round smoothness, but the touch is so light that there is no loss of transparency. There is pithy citrus fruit, a hint of yellow plum and a long fresh smoky finish.
2016 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese [09 17] (PRUM30216C)
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.
2019 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese [17 20] (PRUM32219A)
The generous juicy white peach fruit is lent precision by vibrant lemony acidity, and there is a depth that heralds a very long future. The mineral structure is fine and lean: it compresses the fruit and elongates the wine to an astonishing length. But there is no austerity; the wine remains supple and elegant, melting and pure, throughout.
2018 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese [12 19] (PRUM32218B)
What so many growers are going for, but don't achieve: as close to effortless as you can get. There is enormous energy, a steely core of smoky slate, loads of sweet ripe yellow fruit, ripe lemony acidity and a melting, long rich finish. It will last longest of all the Prüm
2017 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese [13 18] (PRUM32217A)
Confession: during our tasting, I wrote: "bright, vibrant and gorgeous" and then stopped, swept away by how delicious this wine tasted. Only years of experience and professional rigour forced me back to my notebook. So yes. It's full of energy, as well as smooth peachy fruit tinged with pithy citrus, floral flavours, an exceptionally finely woven minerality and a very long, balanced finish.
2016 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese [13 17] (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?)
2010 Bernkasteler Badstube Auslese Goldkapsel [08 11] (PRUM35210A)
2019 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese Goldkapsel [19 20] (PRUM38219C)
More botrytis in evidence here, lending intensity, richness and elegance to the pure peach and yellow orchard fruit. The acidity is brisk and lemony, and there is a powerful long broad spicy slaty finish with a distinct saline note.
2017 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese Goldkapsel [15 18] (PRUM38217A)
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 long, delightfully smoky mineral note.
2015 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese Goldkapsel [18 16] (PRUM38215A)
There is noticeable botrytis here, but it is so light and pure that it remains in the background, softening the wine and adding a note of creamy complexity. The wine is gorgeously precise, with delightful elegance and intensity.
2014 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese Goldkapsel [18 15] (PRUM38214A)
Gentle, sweet and very concentrated, this has ripe lemony acidity and a lively peach fruit, backed by a fine minerality. Very moreish. Drink 2024-2045.
2012 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese Goldkapsel [16 13] (PRUM38212A)
Some botrytis, but of such purity that it does not blur the vibrant yellow fruit, which is almost painfully bright and intense at this stage. Fine, elegant mineral flavours build to a lean lemony finish of great length.
