Willi Schaefer, Graacher Himmelreich Auslese 375ml 2015Germany, Mosel
'Made from golden-yellow, just slightly botrytized grapes, the 2015 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese (AP #4) opens intense but clear and fresh, with slate and grapefruit aromas. Rich and intense, but fine and delicate on the palate, this is a lush, intense, very precise and finessed Auslese. It has a long and aromatic, perfectly balanced finish.' – Wine Advocate 94/100
‘2015 has been a stellar vintage for the great Mosel classics, as well as dry Rieslings from grands cru vineyards,’ wrote Stephan Reinhardt for the Wine Advocate.
'Already during harvest, we had a hunch that 2015 could turn out very special. Now that the wines are bottled and we can show them, we are over the moon about the quality of our wines! For Andrea and I, it could well be a kind of once-in-a-lifetime vintage, although we would be very happy to have another vintage like this any time. The warm and dry weather during summer was perfect for our deeper and water-rich Graacher soils, which did not show any signs of hydric stress, the leaves remained green during the whole summer. Then October came and turned out perfect for harvesting: Dry, cool and sunny. The harvest and later the cellar work proved pure fun this year!' – Christoph Schaefer, Winemaker
