Graacher Riesling Feinherb, Willi Schaefer, Mosel 2022


75cl ALC 11%

Fresh with a lemon spritz appeal to taste. There is plenty of peachy notes with green apple succulence. A wonderful viscosity that is so well balanced by the acidity to give a long and refreshing dry finish. The feinherb sweetness lifts the fruit giving charming balance.

Willi Schaefer

This estate in Graach can trace its history back to 1181 with the Schaefer family recorded as owning vines in Graach back in 1590. Today it is run by Christoph and his wife Andrea Schaefer who took over from Christoph's father Willi in 2015.

Willi had run the estate and built up a great international reputation since taking over from his parents in 1971, and was joined by Christoph who began working with him in 2002. The four hectares of vines, all Riesling, ungrafted and up to 100 years old are situated mostly in Graach with a small parcel of Wehlener Sonnenuhr. They are, however, split into about 100 different parcels on the steep slopes of weathered Devonian slate. The vines are worked in as natural a way as possible with everything done by touch, feel and taste rather than data. The selective, individual picking of the plots is determined entirely by the taste of the grapes and it can take several weeks for all the plots to be harvested. Fermentation is by natural yeasts in mainly old oak 1000 litre casks with as little intervention as possible, long lees ageing and late bottling. The results are spectacular Rieslings of great purity and balance that are in huge demand.

Vintage guide

The warmest year on record, 2022 has produced some super results. The wines of 2021 are lighter in style and more aromatic with evident acidity compared with the previous two vintages. 2020 saw a warm summer, giving ripeness, while a prolonged harvest has given freshness and perfect quality fruit. The 2019s show wonderful rapier-like style, good weight and depth, yields are lower than the generous 2018 vintage. “A glorious vintage” said one grower, amongst many superlatives bandied about for 2018. For the first time in 10 years growers were truly happy with the quantity and the quality. The resulting wines are pure, rich, aromatic, and show a fine acidity. An early harvest following frost earlier in the season meant 2017 produced excellent light, fruity wines with great finesse. Weather conditions were tricky in 2016 and growers had to earn their stripes; the early season was wet, which reduced yields, followed by a hot summer with cool nights bringing excellent aromatics but with wines a little lighter than 2015. The brilliant 2015 vintage took place in ideal conditions and produced wonderfully ripe wines in all styles. Kabinetts are a bit short in quantity, but the dry wines especially are very approachable. 2014 saw a good crop of light, well-balanced wines with well integrated acidity.
