In the mood for a crisp, bright Riesling to go with your spicy Asian fare? Or how about just as a delicious aperitif? Give this Willi Schaefer Graacher Domprobst Kabinett Riesling a shot then.
James Suckling: "Feel the dark side of the Kabinett force! Plenty of cassis and grapefruit aromas, but also ripe stone fruit, darker wild berries, wet earth and rocks. And the interplay of these is what makes this wine so exciting. Extremely long and graceful finish that makes it almost impossible not to reach for the glass again. Drink or hold." Sep 2021
Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate: "2020 is another excellent vintage for the Schaefer family. 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.
Deep, cool, fresh and spicy on the fine and elegant if not aristocratic nose, the 2020 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Kabinett #3 indicates fine and wet slate plates, which give this unique spiciness to nose and palate. Round, lush and elegant, with fine piquancy and precise but delicate acidity, this is a mouth-filling Kabinett from the Domprobst. The 2020 is noble and serious in its appearance and finishes with salt and structure. A first-class wine to have with food in some years. More serious and introverted than the hedonistic Himmelreich Kabinett. 7.5% alcohol. Natural cork. Bottled with an AP number ending with 03 21. Drink date: 2025-2040."
