Willi Schaefer Graacher Domprobst Riesling Auslese #11 2018
Save $40.01 (33%)
A relatively streamlined and light-feeling Auslese, Cox's orange pippins and linden blossom, wonderful fruit…running out of words….
Crunchy in texture, with great intensity and a mineral-driven profile, accented by aromas and flavors of yellow apple and peach cobbler. Shows detailed structure, with electric acidity imparting energy and keeping the various elements intact. Unravels more and more with each sip. Best from 2022 through 2037. 135 cases imported.
Schaefer termed this "a classic Auslese, rendered largely from tiny, golden-yellow fruits with a small share of botrytis." Pure pear, quince and yellow cherry nectar are evoked on lime and grapefruit, these latter really coming to the fore on the vibrantly, intensely yet buoyantly sustained finish.
