Description

Willi Schaefer Graacher Domprobst Riesling Kabinett 2021

Beautiful and thrilling, this Riesling's a lovely example of "Kabinett" wine.

A Riesling with a serious dose of minerals and yellow stone fruit flavours. Fresh and crisp nose of yellow peach and lemon citrus, white flowers and minerals. Nectarine and apricot stone fruit, honey green apple and ripe pineapple flavours on the palate are complemented by a piercing and deep minerality. Powerful and complex off-dry white with a solid structure and pleasant length on the bitter finish.

Top tip: Give this wine time to mature so it can show off its elegance and mineral finesse.

100% Riesling sourced from Graacher Dompropst, which rises steeply directly above the village of Graach at 120–260 metres above sea level. The vineyard got its name because the Trier Cathedral Provost was due one-third of the tithes of wine from Graach. Due to its topography and south-southwest exposure, Domprobst gets plenty of sunlight and is well protected from cold winds and frosts. The warming of the stony, argillaceous slate soils cause a uniform and full ripening of the grapes. The grapes are hand-harvested, gently pressed whole cluster, and spontaneously ferment and age in large old Fuder barrels.
