Joh. Jos. Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett Riesling 2016 (Mosel, Germany) "...Round, intense, juicy..."
"The 2016 Himmelreich Kabinett AP #7 is a beautiful wine in the making. The nose wafts from the glass in a youthfully classic blend of pear, green apple, complex minerality, lime peel, a touch of petrol and a salty topnote. On the palate the wine is crisp, medium-bodied and still quite reserved on the palate, with ripe acids, lovely focus and grip and a long, nascently complex and very nicely balanced finish. This will be excellent, but like all J. J. Prüm wines, it will need some more bottle age before it starts to stir. 2024-2055+." 93 points, John Gilman (5/2018)
"The 2016 Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett (AP 21 17) is deep, cool and flinty on the nose, pretty mineral though still a bit reductive. Round, intense and juicy, this is a densely woven Kabinett with ripe nectarine and plummy flavors as well as a tightly woven and refreshing mineral structure. The finish is pretty persistent and extremely stimulating. Compared to the Badstube, the Himmelreich is more aromatic and expressive. Tasted in March 2017.

"Scents and juicy generosity of mint-tinged and honeysuckle-garlanded fresh apple and black currant are allied to a polished, glossy, buoyant palate presence, leading to a lusciously sustained, delicate finish tinged with crystalline stony inflections. The sweetness here is totally supportive and entirely discreet. This is one of those Kabinetts one seems to inhale in the finish, with floral perfume and wet stone prominent, and only sheer refreshment reminds you of its fluid nature.

"Seductive, with floral and mineral elements, and nectarine and custard aromas and flavors that interchange on the vibrant frame, underscored by bright acidity. Precise and pure, with a light feel and a long, vanilla-tinged aftertaste. (AZ)" 92 points, Wine Spectator (5/2018)
