Willi Schaefer Graacher Feinherb 2008
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.
Another absolutely lovely bottle that offers outstanding value. The bouquet offers up scents of apple, lime zest, a touch of white cherries, petrol, lovely slate tones and a delicate top note of violets. On the palate the wine is medium-full, long, pure and succulent, with the slightly higher level of residual sugar giving the wine a real juicy character at the core. The finish is long, beautifully balanced and shows fine framing acidity to keep the wine bouncy and vibrant on the back end. 89/N-2020+. John Gilman, View From The Cellar
11% alcohol, 18g/l residual sugar, 7.6g/l acid
Precise notes of apple and citrus, with an attractive smoky side. This is very sappy and extremely well balanced. 87/N-2014. Mosel Fine Wines
