2011 Joh. Jos. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1107260 94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A savory and delicate style, with well-integrated passion fruit, apple compote and Key lime pie flavors. Zesty acidity and notes of chive and green herbs give this plenty of snap. Candied mango notes linger on the plush finish. Drink now through 2034. Inner quote mark (2/2013)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Pale golden yellow. Lively aromas of peach pit, honeysuckle and candied lemon. Bright and spicy, but with a velvety, creamy texture to its plush papaya fruit. Herbal essences heighten the pleasingly ripe, supple finish. Not a showy wine but a lovely auslese. (JP) Inner quote mark (1/2013)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Crushed stone and smoke mingle with luscious stonefruit and crisp, green herb on this multifaceted auslese. Each sip reveals a different dimension of fruit, earth or flora, all against a backdrop of honey and acid. A lovely wine to sip and contemplate through a long, meandering finish. Inner quote mark (2/2014)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Prum’s 2011 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese A.P. #17 features an aura of decadent lily with almost overripe Golden Delicious apple and Persian melon capped by pungent hints of yeast and candied lemon rind. Lush, very ripe fruit concentration on the palate receives in addition to inner-mouth lily perfume a slick of honey suggesting the subtle effect of botrytis. Broad and rounded, this offers a luxuriant, soothing finish, if not one that refreshes or stimulates in the manner of the better Prum 2011s. But then, it seems that this year’s Prum Graachers, as a group, need more time and will especially bear re-tasting in 2013 – though Katharina Prum says that before bottling they showed much more generously. (As is true of the corresponding Spatlesen, there will be two “regular” Himmelreich Auslese bottlings.) (DS) Inner quote mark (4/2013)

K&L Notes

91pts Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 17 12. The 2011er Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese AP 17 offers a rather intense nose made of lemon zest, petrol-infused elements, flint stone, and fine herbal elements. The wine is nicely playful and delicate on the still slightly sweet palate, and leaves a gorgeous feel of starfruit and melon in the long and layered finish. This slowly starts to open up and finish to absorb its rest of sweetness, and should be really fully there in a couple of years. 2023-2036." (10/2019)
