Vintage 2008
Varietal Riesling
Appellation Mosel-Saar-Ruwer

Mosel is known for their steep vineyards and soils of porous slate, which is ideal for drainage and good heat retaining properties. Pure and precise, this wine offers violet, lime and mineral salt aromas and flavors that reflect the terroir of the appellation. Though light, it's intense and almost creamy in texture, with a nice, juicy finish.

 

Ratings “Extremely bright in aroma as well as palate impression, the Prums’ 2008 Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Kabinett is dominated by lemon and grapefruit, with village typical cherry and cassis manifesting themselves as an invigorating chew of fruit skin that is delightfully complimented by estate-typical impingement of CO2. Lush yet light, this finishes with not only blazing brightness but a cress-like pungency and strikingly intense salinity and suggestions of wet stone, making your palate stand to attention, wide awake! Plan on following it for a couple of decades, although, unlike many Joh. Jos. Prum wines, I find it (and many of the estate’s 2008s) downright irresistible already. The Prums compare 2008 with 2004 and as such consider it a classic Spatlese year, with thankfully with more wine in the Kabinett range that this estate has seen in many years. And if you remain unconvinced after tasting the present collection that residually sweet Kabinett Riesling is capable not only of reflecting the full potential of great Mosel vineyard sites but also capable of profundity and greatness per se, then you never will be.” - Wine Advocate
