Description

Despite its still youthful freshness it shows the fine fruity Riesling characteristic and an underlying hint of mineral from the blue/grey Devonian slate soil.

Serve this refreshing wine slightly chilled! As apéritif and-–especially when more matured - in combination with seafood or poultry.

WS91
Wine Spectator - "Pure, focused and electric, with violet, black currant, peach, lime and mineral aromas and flavors. This grips your attention with its harmony and precision. There's a long aftertaste of flowers and mineral. Drink now through 2020."
RP91
The Wine Advocate - "The Prum 2008 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett smells of green tea, fresh apple, honeysuckle, and acacia; offers boundless refreshment and gravity-defying buoyancy with pungent invigoration of citrus peel and apple skin; and finishes with its pure fruit and effusive, persistent inner-mouth floral perfume allied to saline, stony, smoke, iodine-like and remarkably savory manifestations of things mineral. It will reward 20-25 years of cellaring for the few who put that claim to the test – or who are already convinced by their past experience with Prum Rieslings. "
ST90
International Wine Cellar - "Subtle floral aromas of peach skin and acacia blossom. Bright, slightly tart apple fruit shows a refreshing, persistent acidity. An invigorating, elegantly balanced wine with persistent slate on an appealing finish."
