Willi Schaefer, Graacher Domprobst Riesling Kabinett 750ml 2019Germany, Mosel
'The 2019 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Kabinett opens to a clear and very delicate bouquet with the typical refined smoky slate aroma that is perfectly intertwined with ripe and elegant fruit. The attack on the palate is finely racy and vital, giving way to an almost dry tasting purity that leads to the fine, almost dry and seriously mineral finish. The 2019 Domprobst Kabinett is perfectly balanced and finessed yet tensioned and highly stimulating in its piquant and vivacious finish. This is an extraordinary Kabinett indeed. 8% alcohol. Tasted in June 2020. Drink 2020 - 2050.' – Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, 93/100
'AP 03 20. The 2019er Graacher Domprobst Riesling Kabinett was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar. It offers an absolutely tantalizing and hugely complex nose made of yellow peach, minty herbs, grapefruit, lime peel, a hint of whipped cream, and fresh lily flowers, all wrapped into fine residual scents from the spontaneous fermentation. The wine has grip, energy, and great focus on the palate, yet remains at all moment extremely light and balanced. A bracing and spicy touch of acidity then kicks in, giving the wine structure and blending the flavors together as well as whipping them up right into the tight and hugely long finish. This remarkable Kabinett in the making is set to become a modern-day legend! 2027-2043.' – Mosel Fine Wine, 96/100
'AP 02 20. RS 50 g/l. Very 'stony' nose that opens out into something more floral. Big hit of glorious fruit on the front palate that then tightens up on the end. Already a lovely drink. Clean and brisk finish. It’s a lovely wine. Drink 2020 – 2030.' – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5/20
