'At first a touch of fresh cream. Then, as it aerates, fresh-herb and orange-peel notes develop. Very clean and pure on the light-to medium-bodied palate with wet-stone freshness. Bright, herbal finish with a hint of tannin.' – James Suckling, 92/100

'Schaefer's 2020 Graacher Riesling Trocken brings spring back onto your table. The nose is intense but bright, refined and weightless due to its floral slatey notes and bright fruit aromas. On the palate, this is a light, finessed and filigreed, very elegant, fresh and stimulating dry Riesling with delicate roundness and frisky mineral acidity. A gorgeous Riesling from Graach bottled with 11% alcohol. Screw cap. Tasted in September 2021. Drink 2021-2035.' – Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, 91/100

'The 2020er Graacher Riesling Trocken comes from the Himmelreich. It offers a beautifully airy and fragrant nose of white melon, starfruit, pear, cassis, fine herbs, wet stone, a dash of whipped cream, and smoky herbs. The wine is beautifully juicy and spicy on the palate and leaves a hugely mouthwatering feel in the airy finish. The aftertaste is subtly tart, animating, and elegant. This grandiose expression of dry Mosel lightness and freshness kicks far above the normal levels of village wines! Now-2032.' – Mosel Fine Wines, 91/100
