Mosel Graacher Riesling Feinherb by Willi Schaefer truly expresses the soul of the Mosel terroir. This pure Riesling is characterized by its ease of drinking, which makes it an excellent companion for convivial lunches and dinners. The grapes ferment in acacia barrels with a capacity of about 1,000 liters with natural yeasts, where they then continue the slow maturation for 8 months. Light, characterized by fine fruity aromas, intertwined with spicy and mineral nuances. Round, with an excellent structure given by the perfect balance between acidity and minerality. A bottle of character, which cannot leave even the most demanding palates indifferent.
This small but historic company is based in Graach, in the Moselle region. The 4 hectares of property include parcels of vineyards that represent fundamental points for the history of Riesling: Graacher Domprobst, Graacher Himmelreich, Wehlener Sonnenhur among others. Willi and Christoph Schaefer cultivate with dedication, with an approach to life that takes care of an intimate harmony: small size of the vines, in order to be able to devote attention to wine in first person; a serene and coherent look at one's wines; a true grace and simplicity. The vineyard and cellar management philosophies are based on practices that are as natural as possible, without the use of chemical herbicides or synthetic products. The result is wines with a delicate texture, quietly but inexorably chiseled, all gathered under a quiet surface which then opens onto abysmal depth, complexity and longevity.
