  • TASTING NOTE: “Library Release 2022. They released some bottles early but kept some back. Though Katharina Prüm still thinks this is a little too young to drink. Intoxicating and promising kerosene-like notes but just as prominent is the intense grapefruit aroma. Mouth-filling richness, the sweetness perfectly balanced by the acidity so that it flows cooly across the palate. Peach and apricot sorbet on the finish. Pure pleasure, and not as sweet-tasting as you might expect.” 18/20 Points - Julia Harding MW, Jancis Robinson.com
  • ABOUT THE WINE: With no Goldkapsel bottles from the 2021 vintage, Katharina Prüm has released a ten-year-old Graacher Himmelreich Goldkapsel to fill the void! Prüm felt that, while the wine is still young, it has developed beautifully, and the warmer year offers a pleasing contrast to the 2021 vintage. Katharina Prüm explains the Goldkapsel wines in this way: “Think of them as limited edition, small production lots of the best Auslese of a vintage. They are made from stronger, selected grapes containing higher concentrated juice, usually affected by a certain amount of botrytis, capable of aging even remarkably longer than ‘basic’ Auslesen, lasting for many decades. Over time, they lose some of their sweetness, gain more and more elegance and harmony, and the complex profile and depth come to the forefront.” German Goldkapsel wines can work with desserts—ideally fruit-based dishes or crème caramel, nothing too sweet. However, they are again better paired—especially with age—with robust, savoury food and hard cheeses. You can throw anything at them, even spicy dishes, red meat and the same flavours mentioned in the Auslese bracket above. These wines are far more versatile than most dry whites and certainly more so than all red wine styles.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: The J.J. Prüm estate was founded in 1911 by Johann Josef Prüm. The 13.5 hectare estate includes some 70% of ungrafted vines - because the phylloxera louse cannot survive in the slate soils of the Mosel.  Dr Manfred Prüm has led the estate since 1969, with his daughter Katharina now running the winery. Unique amongst producers in the Mosel for it's style and quality, it is the great sites, old vines, the lowest yields, very late harvesting and selection of only the best berries that distinguishes the wines of J.J Prüm. In the winery the winemaking is as natural as possible with as little intervention as possible. The wines typically need several years to start showing their best and can live and develop for decades.
