"... Andrea and Christoph Schaefer produced a very tiny but oh so breathtaking line-up of wines in the 2021 vintage. The wines show great purity, finesse, but also huge presence and energy, and really show the best of the Mosel can offer, with lightness and complexity... The fruity-styled wines are all modern-day classics and true majestic Mosel wines...!

"Welcome on the summit! This year we have raised the rating for the extraordinary and characterful Riesling wines, produced by the small, traditional family estate in 2021. In his sustainably produced Graach and Wehlen Rieslings, Christoph Schaefer presents impressively how the Mosel-typical residual sugar can be transformed into infatuating elegance and that immense juiciness can be in a wine if it is made by skilled and talented hands. Just magnificent. Mosel at its best!"
