If you don't know the wines of Willi Schaefer, you've been missing out. Considered the one of the best if not the best sweet wine producer in the world. Christoph and Andrea Schaefer farm a miniscule 4.4 hectares in the village of Graach with a sliver of vines in neighboring Wehlener Sonnenuhr. Their wines display a menagerie of fruit which is set as a backdrop to the cristaline minerallity oozing out of every bottle.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 93
"Very ripe but fresh pear and apple are mingled with scents of lime, wet stone and salt spray. The palate is succulent, infectiously juicy, buoyant and bright, with zest of lime and skin as well as seeds of pear and apple serving for piquant, tart-edged counterpoint. The vibrant, generously fruity and refreshing finish is mouthwateringly salt-tinged. Seeing that a mere 7.5% alcohol is present, it comes as no surprise to note residual sugar in the mid-70s, yet the sweetness is supportive rather than extraneous. Drinking window: 2020 - 2042"

Wine Spectator

WS 92
"Harmonious, with prominent slate details adding to the crunchy texture, while apricot, pear and dandelion aromas and flavors provide a charming aspect. Tangy acidity makes this refreshing and delivers a long, lingering finish. Will develop nicely. Best from 2022 through 2035."
