Willi Schaefer Graacher Domprobst Riesling Auslese #11 2012
This plants its flag on the summit for slate-grown wine. You know right away; the fragrance and palate-entry are all that's needed. The second level is now more identifiably "Auslese" though still without botrytis. Another crescendo of slate. It soars like a paraglider, but the essence, the great dark center, is earthbound. The finish is nutty and murmurs forever. Close to sublime.
