The 2001 Riesling Kabinett Graacher Himmelreich reveals a nose of slate and minerals. More demure and elegant than the Wehlener Sonnenuhr, it admirably combines outstanding richness with a zesty acidity. White peaches and Champagne currants can be found in its pure, refined, and long finishing personality. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. This is a superb value.

Flavors reminiscent of peaches and apricots accented by scents of freshly picked wild flowers. Delicate and light with sleek acidity and a sweetness that does not become cloying.

Exotic aromas of passion fruit and red berries segue into lime and mineral on the palate in this intense, racy Riesling. It has the live-wire structure of a Saar or Ruwer wine. Drink now through 2007. Highest rated Mosel Kabinett.

A racy, full-bodied wine offering a very floral nose with peach and grapefruit flavors. The acidity in this semi-dry Riesling makes for a perfect complement to mustard based sauces as well as white meat dishes.

The 2003 Graacher Himmelreich ("The Kingdom of Heaven") is full-bodied for a Kabinett, with fresh, lovely flavors of peach and apricot. A classic wine that can be sipped on its own or with a light entrée.

This starts with aromatic floral notes, but doesn't carry through on the palate. It tastes dilute, with modest fruit and a short finish. Drink now through 2006.

Pale yellow. Bright aromas of peach, pine nut and lemon oil. Elegant apple fruit kept light by good balancing acidity. Easy to drink.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Graach vineyards are geographically part of the great, six kilomters long slate mountain above the right bank of the river, reaching form Bernkastel, via Graach and Wehlen down to Zeltingen and incorporating such world-famous Riesling sites as: Berncasteler Doctor and Badstube, Graacher Dompropst and Himmelreich, Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr and Schloßberg. The vineyards of Graach have a total of 135 hectares and are planted nearly 100% with Riesling vines. The Graacher Himmelreich and Dompropst themselves cover 87 and 28,5 hectares respectively. The exposition is facing south-west and the soil consists of fresh weathering clay-slate. The property of Max Ferd. Richter in both vineyards dates from the beginning of the 19th. Century. The wines form Graach always show a full bodied and well structured character.
