Willi Schaefer Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spätlese #10 2020

Willi Schaefer Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spätlese #10 is soft and delicate, you'll find your tongue tingling with minerals after every sip!

Known to Schaefer amateurs as the firm, stoney one. A mineral and flinty bouquet with fruity pear and apple notes. The juicy palate possesses concentrated flavours of dried apricot, honeyed green apple, white pear, and hints of wet stones and almonds. Well-structured with a bright acidity and delicate sweetness, closing in an intense and saline finish.

Top tip: This wine's got fantastic ageing potential, so cellar it until that special occasion in 2023 or later!

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.
