Willi Schaefer Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett

We bought it all; let’s hope there’s some left by the time you read this. A perfect slatey Schaefer Kab. No more needs to be said. Have fun and drink this now in hot summer weather without a scintilla of guilt regarding that “infanticide” nonsense. I mean, you could wait 15 years and it’ll taste no different than it does now, so go on and play peek-a-boo with baby.

"The 2020 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett is a Schaefer classic that opens with a brilliantly clear and still reductive bouquet of crushed slate and perfectly ripe Riesling fruit. The attack on the palate is vibrantly fresh, but there is also lush fruit and generosity as well as this hedonistic lightness and brightness that makes you quaff this Kabinett masterpiece until the bottle's end. This is a highly stimulating, cool and grippy wet Riesling with so much Jugendstil. 7.5% alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted in September 2021"
