Joh. Jos. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett JJ1-16 2018

Delicate aromas of peach and candied lemon. Glossy but quite firm for a Kabinett, this tastes more off-dry. The clean finish offers lime and discreet slate.

93pts Wine Enthusiast– 2018 vintage

Succulent flavors of pineapple, lemon and mango dance and dart on the palate of this spry little Kabinett. It’s an intensely fruity, juicy sip but anchored by a reverberating backbone of acidity and lingering notes of earth, smoke, spice and animal.

Delightful already, but there’s so much potential for cellaring, too.

91pts Wine Spectator– 2018 vintage

A beautiful kabinett, featuring notes of white raspberry and apricot, underscored by electric acidity and minerality, creating harmony and imparting energy and length. Light yet expressive, with a solid structure. Spice notes emerge on the finish. Best from 2021 through 2033. 300 cases imported.

93pts Wine Advocate– 2018 vintage

The 2018 Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett is bright, precise and floral on the slightly flinty, very elegant and finessed nose with crunchy slate aromas.  Piquant and fresh on the filigreed and crystalline palate, this is a lush and tropical-flavored, buoyant and frisky Himmelreich with juicy apricot and white peach aromas and the fine grip of broken slate. 

The finish is straight, piquant, well structured, stimulatingly fresh and salty.  This is a gorgeous 2018 that tastes almost dry in the end.  Tasted at the domain in September 2020.
