Willi Schaefer are a small family winery that dates back to the year 1121. They produce exclusively Riesling, because this grape variety is qualitatively the best that thrives on the weathered Devonian slate soil. The parcels are located in Graacher Dompropst and Graacher Himmelreich, as well as in Wehlener Sonnenuhr. The plots are located on steep slate slopes and consist of up to 100-year-old, ungrafted vines.
Lovely. The bouquet offers up a simply beautiful nose of lime blossoms, grapefruit, green apple, petrol and a lovely base of slate. On the palate the wine is medium-full, crisp and quite defined by its slate elements, with lovely focus, bright acids, and fine length and grip on the dry and beautifully balanced finish. Very classy. 88 points, drink now to 2020. John Gilman, View From The Cellar

Very racy and light, and great overall precision. The finish is harmonious, with well-integrated flavours, even if the acidity is still somewhat present. This performs at levels well above a “mere” basic estate bottling and offers great QPR. 87/N-2014. Mosel Fine Wines
