Average critic rating : 96.0 points



Flinty and fine Riesling aromas on the deep, fascinating coolish, precise and highly elegant nose of the 2013 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Auslese #11 lead to a sweet, intense, well-concentrated and juicy palate, with a beautifully piquant minerality that makes this noble wine extremely lovely to drink. Perfectly made, straightforward and very salty in the finish, this focussed Auslese is always stimulating in its sweet and salty purity. ||"2013 was a great Spätlese and Auslese vintage,“ says Christoph Schaefer. In fact, he bottled just 20,000 wines: two Kabinetts, three Spätlesen and four Auslesen, of which two are classic, two made with a higher proportion of botrytis and a fifth for the auction. "The window to achieve the perfect ripeness was very narrow in 2013 and again in 2014; so we harvested quickly with 30 people, our 'pensioner gang',“ says Schaefer. The resulting wines are absolutely delicious in their finesse, elegance and terroir expression.|| eRobertParker.com.February, 2015
