2007 Willi Schaefer Graacher Domprost Riesling Auslese #17, 7.5%
94 g/l residual sugar- serious territory.
The wine is still a bright pale gold colour, with more “presence” than the two Kabinetts opened earlier. There is a touch of petroleum, which does not detract from the array of white peach, white flower, ripe red apple, lemon sherbet and flinty aromatics; the palate is sensual, with those fruit flavours melding with light honey viscosity and a twangy vibrant acidity. This wine is a parcel of delectability, and a fine example of a Mosel sweetie with some bottle development – with great prospects for its future.
Drink to 2033, and 94 points
