The Domprobst Spätlese #5 is a grandly sculpted Riesling with amazing drive, length, and balance. There's something especially gripping about its agility, punch, and mineral tension.

Schaefer's 2020 Domprobst Spätlese #5 is a beautiful example of the wine's steely, finessed, and build-to-age signature. It offers a very clear example of the kinetic energy and blazing slatey minerality that defines the wine. Along with richly complex notes of spice, stone fruits, and floral notes, you can expect Schaefer's verve and fine-ness along with serene precision.

The Domprobst Spätlese #5 is a perennial favorite of Schaefer's stable and one of the wines that people most fervently search for. We're very happy to offer it at this sharp price but be warned there's not a lot to go around.

2020 Schaefer, Willi Riesling Spatlese Graacher Domprobst No. 5

750 ml


Mosel Fine Wines: "The 2020er Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spätlese AP 05 was made essentially from grapes harvested in the Gerdsgrub and Fergert sectors of the vineyard and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar. It proves still rather backward and marked by residual scents from its spontaneous fermentation. After a while subtly apricot-infused flavors of melon, cassis, blueberry, blackberry, and aniseed herbs emerge from the glass. The wine proves subtle, intensely cream, and nicely zesty on the palate and leaves a gorgeous feel of ripe and delicately exotic fruits in the long finish. The combination of dark fruits, whipped cream, and juicy acidity packed into mouthwatering sweetness are truly remarkable"
