2016 Willi Schaefer Graacher Domprobst Auslese #11 375ml

Tasted from a 375-milliliter bottle, the 2016 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Auslese (AP #11) offers a very clear, super ripe but still healthy bouquet of perfectly ripe Riesling intermixed with flinty, slightly caramelly aromas. On the palate, this is a lithe yet complex, piquant, refreshingly mineral and highly elegant Domprobst Auslese that reveals a firm, tensioned structure in the long, salty, already stimulating finish. Tasted March 2018. Read more

Fresh and vibrant, displaying orange zest, quince paste and spice notes. A hint of sweetness emerges midpalate, while a beam of acidity cuts through, delivering lemon marmalade and apple flavors on the minera-infused finish. Drink now through 2032. 15 cases imported.

David Schildknecht - Vinous

Honeydew and muskmelons are joined by Golden Delicious apple and mango on a headily ripe nose and an impressively rich, luscious, creamy, glycerol-slicked palate. Yet delicacy and buoyancy, common denominators of the present collection, are alluringly evident. The soothing, superbly sustained finish introduces a hint of caramel that points to the presence of botrytis.
