Gorgeous and in a great place now. Golden in color, peach, apple, and that beautiful filigreed precision.

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!
