Riesling Spatlese Graacher Himmelreich Schaefer 93 Jg 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Himmelreich Spätlese is a lovely bottle in the making and a wine that seems decidedly more snappy than its Kabinett counterpart. The bouquet is deep, young and vibrant, as it jumps from the glass in a superb mix of green apple, tangerine, slate, petrol and lime zest. On the palate the wine is medium-full, crisp and very pure, with great focus and balance, zesty acidity and very, very good length and grip on the dancing finish. A beautiful and quite classic expression of the Himmelreich...93" JG 03/11 "Bright, zesty apple, lime and grapefruit donate aromatic pizzazz and generous refreshment to the Schaefers’ 2010 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spatlese, whose suggestions of brown spices and herbal essences, along with saliva-inducing salinity and scallop-like savor as well as a classic Mosel cantus firmus of wet stone, make for a levitating and irresistible performance that finishes with tenacity and panache. This promises to remain a hit for at least the next quarter of a century...91" WA #199 02/12
