Winemaker's Notes:

This vibrant, elegant and classical Graacher Himmelreich Spätlese shows an appealing interplay between a pronounced minerality, crisp acidity and fine fruit aromas and flavors. More aging will result into even more harmony and finesse.
My Notes:

About JJ Prum:

For centuries the Prüm family has called the village of Wehlen home. The 33.5 acre estate consists of nearly 70% ungrafted vines. Holdings are in the best parts of the top Middle-Mosel sites: Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Graacher Domprobst, Bernkasteler Lay, Bernkasteler Badstube, and Bernkasteler Bratenhöfchen. Average annual production is 13,000 cases. The harvest at J.J. Prüm is always extremely late, and the wines are very long-lived.
