Schaefer is absolutely, without question, one of the greatest producers in Germany. This is a benchmark for the Mosel and the wines are coveted not just by collectors, but by other growers.
The nose is aromatic with hints of lime blossom, honeysuckle, green pear and a mineral, flinty smokiness. The palate is insanely pure and complex with some mid-palate tension and a long finish of honey and key lime pie.

Griesbauerhof is located on the hills of St. Magdalena and St. Justina in Rentsch, Alto Adige, Italy. The ancestral farm has been in the Mumelter Family since 1785. Here, at an altitude of 300 meters above sea level, the vineyards receive a good amount of sunshine and the sandy clay soil creates complex red wines and extra rich white wines.
This dry red wine is made from Schiava, a grape variety known for its tangy red fruit flavors, fresh acidity, and fine-grained tannins. Think of it like Pinot Noir meets Beaujolais with a signature Süditrol twist!
“Aromas of menthol flint crushed herb leather and a balsamic note come together in the glass. Smooth and vibrant the elegant palate delivers dried cherry strawberry star anise pipe tobacco and mineral framed in polished tannins and bright acidity. Hold for even more complexity. Drink 2017–2027.” – WE, 93pts.
