2018 Willi Schaefer Riesling Pack

Willi Schaefer gets the nod because not since 2011 have I seen a vintage more aligned with Schaefer’s deepest, most fundamental strengths than 2018. It’s a serene, fruit-forward vintage with a succession of beauties that finally stills you and leaves you silently grateful. Terry Theise’s Pick for Winery of the 2018 Vintage

Contains 1 bottle each of the following and includes shipping:

Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett 2018

A superb bottle, with the delicacy and filigree one expects from this pradikat. The lovely nose wafts in a very pure mix of grapefruit, lime, a touch of wild yeasts, a beautiful base of slate, a whisper of petrol and a lovely topnote of violet. The palate is pure, medium full and succulent at the core, with lovely backend mineral drive, bright acids and excellent length and grip on the complex finish. 92+ Points – John Gilman, 2023-60

Graacher Domprobst Riesling Kabinett 2018

Some herbal elements, mirabelle, greengage and caraway. Superbly racy and playful and leaves a razor-sharp yet nicely juicy feel in the finish. A subtle and beautifully soothing touch of whipped cream rounds off the aftertaste. This is a real kabinett with all the raciness defining the style. 93 Points – Mosel Fine Wines, 2026-38 

Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spatlese 2018

Destined to be long lived and superb. The complex nose is vibrant and refined, offering up lime, pear, a touch of orange zest, bee pollen, elderflowers, minerality and a topnote of citrus blossoms. The palate is medium full, pure and zesty, with lovely inner tension between beautiful fruit tones and mineral undertow. The finish is long, focused and bouncy, with lovely lift, cut and grip. 93+ Points – John Gilman, 2022-75

Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spatlese #10 2018

Telltale aromatics including pear, quince, greengage, laurel and caraway. Packed with fruits, spices and herbs yet incredibly filigreed right into the spicy finish. A superb effort with real spatlese character. 94 Points – Mosel Fine Wines, 2028-48 

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese 2018

Another absolutely stellar example of how strong this pradikat level is in this vintage. The pure and utterly refined nose delivers an elegant aromatic constellation of white cherries, pears, a beautiful base of slate, a youthful hint of petrol, vanilla bean and a top note of white flowers. On the palate the wine is pure, medium-full, complex and still youthfully reticent, with lovely detail and depth, bright acids and a long, filigreed and dancing finish. Classic. 94 Points – John Gilman, 2023-75

Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spatlese #5 2018

Gorgeous nose of dried herbs, hay, greengage, whipped cream and smoky elements. Overtly fruity yet playful on the delicately creamy palate and leaves a clean and pure feel of herbs and spices in the long finish. 94 Points – Mosel Fine Wines, 2028-48
