Robert Parker

"The 2020 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spätlese is clear yet pretty reductive on the nose and doesn't yet sing if poured straight from the just opened bottle. The palate is crystalline, fine and lush, very elegant and complex and reveals fine and salty grip on the intense and sustainable 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

German Wines

Is there a better grape than Riesling? Is there a better value? Its fruit purity, its perfume, and its mineral nuance are all unparalleled. And for centuries, the top German Rieslings were priced accordingly: at least as expensive as the top red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. But nowadays you could spend a lifetime exploring Germany’s great Riesling-producing regions while staying well within your budget. You might take an occasional break to try Germany’s other white grapes or perhaps a glass of Spätburgunder (the local name for Pinot Noir). It’s time to get started!
