Nose of passionfruit, green apples, honey, and a little citrus & banana. The palate has all of the same rich flavors, starting with green apple, adding minerality with citrus and pear with honey, then a hint of those tropical fruits on a very long finish. Decent acidity that gets more noticeable towards the finish. There's a little petrol in the background that also becomes slightly stronger on the finish. This gets better after a few hours as the petrol fades.
As I've recently said on the forums, my wife and I would be perfectly happy drinking no other Riesling but Graacher Himmelreich from JJ Prüm for the rest of our existence.
I can't say that I have had many Prums that I have felt were ready right out of the bottle, but this is one that is perfectly singing right now. bananas and hazelnuts on the nose. Good concentration on the palate with pears, lychee and some marzipan. Superb length and elegance. Bravo!
