"The 2020 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spätlese #5 offers a deep and coolish, flinty and rather spicy more than fruity nose with piquant lemon and grapefruit as well as ripe and fine raisin aromas. Round, lush and precise on the filigreed palate, this is a beautifully elegant, piquant and fruity Spätlese with vibrantly fine acidity and crisp grape berry and apple fruit. Very delicate and digestible even at this early stage, with a tense, salty-mineral finish. 7.5% alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted in September 2021. 2020 is another excellent vintage for the Schaefer family. Although only one Auslese has been produced and no higher predicate, 2020 is a great vintage in terms of quality, even though the Schaefers "had to deal with conditions" they "have never had before." However, this "very exceptional year" has brought an impressive range of stimulating Kabinett and gorgeous Spätlese Rieslings." -Robert Parker

What importer Skurnik Wines has to say about this wine...

Region: Mosel

Vineyard: Domprobst (Graach)

Soil: Blue Devonian Slate

Fermentation & Elevage: Spontaneous fermentation in old Mosel Fuder

In most vintages, there are two Spätleses made from the Domprobst vineyard, #5 & #10. These are not barrel distinctions but rather an indication of the style. #10 is the wine that leans in the “crunchier” direction while #5 shows more opulent fruit and richness.
