Schaefer's 2015s are absolutely stunning. They dramatize how beautiful Schaefer's wines can be.

I'm happy to have an opportunity to offer these two Auslesen, which serve as monuments to the greatness of the 2015 vintage. 

Schaefer's 2015s possess a stunning refinement, grace and ageablity. The Auslesen will age to become absolutely epic wines. 

The Himmelreich Auslese #4 has plenty of richness and concentration, but what really stands out is its slate-y mineral cut and incredible length. The Domprobst Auslese #11 has the classic layered complexity of the site with walk-on-tip toe finesse.

When it comes to aging, only Egon Müller and JJ Prum can compete. In the cellar, Schaefer is bulletproof. This is a very small parcel. Please give us your ideal order, and we'll try our best.

2015 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese #4
Special Bottle Price: $65.95
Mosel Fine Wines: "This starts off on the toffee side before fresher scents grapefruit, orange, lime, smoke, incense and tar kick in. A superb streak of acidity cuts right through the palate into the very long, fresh and focused finish, providing a gorgeous balance to a powerful and delicately creamy structure. The finish is intense and very long. While amazing now, this Auslese Eiswein styled wine should prove stunning in a decade or two"

2015 Graccher Domprobst Auslese #11
Special Bottle Price: $84.95
Mosel Fine Wines: "This offers a most beautiful and complex nose of freshly cut pineapple, honey, yellow peach, mirabelle as well as fresh flavors of citrus, mint and tar. The wine is creamy, juicy and fruity yet at the same time superbly zesty and focused on the palate. The finish has intense and aromatic finish proves long, zippy and precise. What a little beauty in the making!"
