This vineyard turned me on to #Riesling back in 1974 and I've never been the same--gorgeous aromas of baked apples and apricots with delicate honey notes supported by fine extract--bottom line: beautifully balanced and simply delicious but lay off it for a good 10 years more at least! #VDP #Auction #Haart — 5 years ago
In an extremely difficult vintage where the grapes needed to be suddenly harvested over a 10 day period, making clean, late-picked wine was very challenging. However, this did not prevent Willi and son Christoph #Schaefer from crafting a beautiful, classy #Mosel #Riesling from their best vineyard--the #GraacherDomprobst.
Yes, it is slightly heavier and more concentrated than other cooler years, but with a kiss of #botrytis lining the contours of this almost-Auslese-level wine, the result is, well, magical and the wine utterly sings! The overall balance and structure are amazing and this super rarity auction bottle could keep easily another twenty years! #Auction #VDP — 4 years ago
One of the #Saar region's finest sites not far from the world renowned Scharzhofberg--our esteemed auctioneer, Max von Kunow, has fashioned a lovely, typical Saar #Riesling that is as fine as anything they've ever made--BRAVO! #VDP #Auction — 5 years ago
#2006 was a wild year that featured a large array of glorious late-harvest, sweet wines that were enhanced by ample amounts of noble rot or #botrytis. This #Spätlese is really a mouth-filling #Auslese that lingers for seemingly minutes on end yet has a fine core of ripe acidity that provides the balance needed to age easily for another decade or so! #Auction #VDP #FritzHaag #Juffer #Sonnenuhr #14 #Riesling — 4 years ago
Sebastien #Schäfer has wasted no time in proving why he fully deserves to be a member of #Germany's elite #VDP...a finely chiseled piece of crystal-clear, vibrant #Riesling...shimmering with intense minerality...needing at least another 5-7 years bottle age. — 5 years ago
