Ratings and Tasting Notes:
WS93 Features a savory aroma, with flavors to match, showing good acidity to the juicy apple, pear and white currant flavors. Curry notes extend on the finish, displaying plenty of cream. Powerfully structured and deep with spice. Drink now through 2032. 1,000 cases made.
RP91 Site-typical scents and bursting juiciness of mint-tinged grapefruit, pineapple, and apple inform the Prum 2011 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spatlese A.P. #12, albeit with a bit of a yeasty, cheesy veil that needs to blow off. A delightful inner-mouth floral perfume ¡V akin to honeysuckle ¡V along with a slick of honey add decadent richness to the palate. Hints of apple pip piquancy and chew of tart apple skin along with crushed stone accents lend counterpoint to the succulently-sustained finish. It seems that for whatever reason ¡V the Prums confess to having no clue ¡V their Graachers are behind their other wines in evolution. Look for ¡§the usual¡¨ quarter-century or more of admirable service. (There will be a second bottling.).
AG91 Melon, mango and lemongrass dominate the bouquet. Sweet and succulent in the mouth, offering mandarin orange, cherry pit and subtle slate flavors. Still a touch austere, but animated on the finish.
