Willi Schaefer Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spätlese
A real peach bomb supported by lemon and lime citrus.
Pale yellow with a green tint. The crisp bouquet opens with citrus, pear and floral notes. Dominant peach flavours give way to layers of green apple, lemon zest, minerals, and mango and melon for a tropical touch. A weightless mouthfeel with the perfect balance of intense acidity and sweetness, closing off in an exceptional long dry finish
Top tip: Your cellar is already coveting this Riesling as it has a promising future and will just get better with age. 100% Riesling sourced from Willi Schaefer's Himmelreich vineyards. The vineyard name of Himmelreich, which translates as Kingdom of Heaven, likely comes from the site's south to southwest exposure. The vineyard's deep clayey slate soil, cool Mosel climate and perfect sunlight exposure make it a paradise for Riesling. The grapes are hand-harvested, gently pressed whole cluster, and spontaneously ferment and age in old Fuder barrels.
