A racy style, with flinty notes to the fresh-cut apple and crunchy peach flavors, matched to a slightly viscous salinity. Lemon zest lingers on the well-structured finish, revealing hints of passion fruit. Drink now...

Heady violet and stone fruit aromas are swathed in fresh, green herbs on the nose of this honeyed, elegantly fruity kabinett. Brisk acidity reverberates on the palate, where sweet fruit then mixes with a long, mineral-tinged finish. Drink now through 2014 to maximize its fresh, floral exuberance.

17/20 Pretty smoky and subtle. A little reductive but not so much as to hide the citrus fruit fragrance. Matched on the palate by a slaty, almost savoury tang, becoming more citrusy on the back palate. Savoury, minerally... 17/20 Pretty smoky and subtle. A little reductive but not so much as to hide the citrus fruit fragrance. Matched on the palate by a slaty, almost savoury tang, becoming more citrusy on the back palate. Savoury, minerally racy finish. There's some sweetness but the mineral salty taste dominates at the end. (JH)

The Prum 2011 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett leads with scents of mint-tinged cassis and Golden Delicious apple, but the softness that these intimate on the palate doesn’t really materialize thanks to tart apple skin and piquant apple pip and grapefruit rind impingements, all the way through a bitter-sweet interchange of flavors leading into a satisfyingly sustained albeit rounded-off, delicate and soothing finish. Greater complexity and a sense of transparency may well emerge with time – and one can count on two decades’ high performance – but I doubt that this will ever display the interactive dynamic of the corresponding Bernkasteler. - David Schildknecht
