Weingut Willi Schaefer | Textbook Mosel Kabinett

The Estate produced some textbook Kabinett in a style not seen here since 2002 and 1998. This is good news for all wine lovers who, like us, adore this style of wine. Our Mosel of the month for July is a great Kabinett from the 2008 vintage: fresh, vibrant and delicious! But also the two other Kabinett produced in 2008, the Graacher Himmelreich and the Wehlener Sonnenuhr, are superb.

Willi Schaefer

Graacher Domprobst Riesling Kabinett

02 09


The overall sense of balance in this wine is similar to that of the two other Kabinett made in this vintage: the only difference is the aromatic profile, which is more driven by yellow fruit (peach but also mango) and is slightly more opulent on the palate. The balance is impeccable and the finish sappy and mouthwatering. 2013-2020
