The 2021er Graacher Riesling Feinherb is an off-dry wine made from fruit harvested mainly in the Himmelreich. It offers a beautifully fresh and minty nose of wet sone, stone fruit, lozenge, white peach, lime, and lime tree. The wine has great energy and presence on the palate, while the wine maintains a great sense of airiness and lightness. The finish is beautifully long and focused and leaves an already dry and sharp taste of spices and fine herbs. This is a truly remarkable dry-tasting wine.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2031

The 2021 Graacher Riesling feinherb shows a pure, bright and coolish bouquet with just-ripe fruit aromas intermingled with flinty and discreet oak notes that complete the nose beautifully. Bottled with 17 grams per liter of residual sugar, this is a dense, round and intense, beautifully textured and balanced Riesling with a stimulating, saline and finely tannic finish. This is a beautiful off-dry Riesling that is already a rounder and also slightly more complex Graacher (predominantly Himmelreich) compared to the dry selection. This 2021 should be cellared for 6 or 7 years, but it has the potential to refine over decades. 10.5% stated alcohol. Screw cap. Tasted in July 2022.
Anticipated maturity: 2030-2050
