    Winemaker's Notes:

    This beautiful Riesling Spaetlese displays succulent, ripe fruit, and a nice mineral touch from the slate. Great mid palate, almost silky texture with an interplay of yellow fruit aromatics and a faint hint of vanilla. Firm acidity keeps the wine lively and ensures great complexity and longevity.

    Excellent with aromatic food. In the "classic" Western cuisine try with rich pates and very aromatic, soft rind cheeses, especially blue cheese. Good with savory dishes that contain a little bit of sweetness in their preparation or sauce. For Asian/Fusion cuisine use with a wide range of flavourful dishes that are spicy or have a sweet and sour combination of flavors. Also nice with fresh fruit and nuts.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Plush and opulent, with a smoky, minerally quality running through the concentrated flavors of apricot, peach and baked apple. Key lime pie and meringue notes mark the effusively juicy finish. Drink now through 2022. 80 cases imported.

    Mango, pink grapefruit, cashew, and hints of white raisin in the nose of Selbachs’ extremely late-harvested 2009 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spatlese foreshadow its lushly fruited, richly nutty, silken-textured palate performance. Subtle salinity and stoniness add interest and allure to a lingering, lip-licking finish. This impeccably-balanced and finesseful Riesling is arguably more Auslese than Spatlese, but I won’t quibble. It should be a joy to follow for 20-25 years. This should be a fantastic illustration of its site and vintage even a quarter-century from now.

    Lively aromas of fresh apple, tropical fruit and nut oils. The juicy papaya fruit and attractive oiliness are leavened by invigorating acidity. Toasted nuts and a distinct slate element on the long, very refreshing finish.
