More information on wine critics and ratings

While initially quite closed on nose this is actually more plump with fruit than the Bernkastler tasted before; notes of marmalade, pink grapefruit, the noble bitterness of meadow herbs and sage.

A highly sophisticated Kabinet, with ripe acids and clear airy flavours finishing on complex slate and savoury minerals.

The Himmelreich of Graach is a first rate vineyard, the soils are a little deeper and richer than the Wehlener Sonnenuhr and the site is little less sun-blanched.

Manfred is certainly one of the world's more eccentric wine producers and a tasting in his drawing room with him is always enjoyable and entertaining. In the Sonnenuhr of Wehlen he owns a portion of one of the Mittel Mosel's top vineyards. Its steep south-facing dark slate slopes tend to result in deeply flavoured, mineral yet rich and smoky wines. In addition, he manipulates some plots in the next door Himmelreich of Graacher which produces engaging wines with fresh acidities that are… Read more

Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (2021)
The 2021 Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett is clear, bright and deep on the finely flinty, well-concentrated and aromatic nose with its delicate slate perfume. Lush and fresh on the palate, with savory acidity and mineral grip as well as lovely citrus flavors toward the finish, this is a light, saline and crystalline, stimulating and grippy Kabinett with an intense, almost dry and mouth-watering finish. A classic.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2021)
Apricot, nectarine and elderflower aromas and flavors mark this feathery white, which does show a lot of substance that is backed by firm acidity. The mineral backbone doesn't reveal itself until the lingering, stoney finish. This needs a few more years to fully shine. Best from 2025–2035.

James Suckling (JS) : 94 Points (2020)
Brimming with fresh white and yellow peach. Lovely interplay of juicy fruit and salty minerality on the light-footed and precise palate. Very delicate and gentle, long finish. Drink or hold.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 92 Points (2018)
In a striking and delightful contrast to its superb Badstube counterpart, this Himmelreich Kabinett offers a cooling and overtly citric personality. Lemon and grapefruit are suffused with green herbal essences, accompanied by yeast and wet stone on the nose and an adjunct of juicy ripe honeydew on the polished, delicate, sorbet-like palate. Piquancy of citrus zest and seeds is restrained but invigoratingly efficacious, and the generously juicy finish is admirably transparent to underlying wet stone. (DS) (8/2020)

Wine Spectator (WS) : 91 Points (2018)
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.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 95 Points (2017)
The first sip of this wine was like getting a smack for having opened it so soon. The acidity is sharp and unforgiving against the stony flavors; the tautness of the structure gives the wine the snap of a rubber band. But that’s a good sign: Clearly, this wine has something to protect—like the pristinely ripe, clean fruit it eventually reveals in scents of Meyer lemons and tart gooseberries, green pears and tangy pineapple. Pulled from old vines, most of them on their own roots, and vinified in stainless steel with ambient yeasts, it’s regal and restrained. In keeping with JJ Prüm’s age-worthy style, this is set to develop well over the next decade or more. (2/2019)

Felsina Berardenga Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colonia 2019
Named after an ancient heliotherapy centre (Colonia), the Colonia vineyard was the result of a difficult replanting project begun in 1966 and completed only 1993. The very rocky soil of this vineyard is full of iron and magnesium which give it a typical red colour.
