Terry Theise on the 2011 vintage: "So, the winery of the vintage is clearly Willi Schaefer, for an astonishingly brilliant collection surpassing anything I’ve ever tasted from this already stellar domain. Each wine, from the littlest to the grandest, showed an achingly clear line of pure terroir, both specific to Graach and somehow also talking to some ur-Mosel eternity, and no matter how rich the wines became, the clear line was always there."
"The 2011 AP #5 Spätlese from the Domprobst is a bit more typically defined by its profound base of slate soils, but also offers up greater complexity on both the nose and palate than the more forward and succulent AP #10 version. The nose on this fine Spätlese offers up a deep and very classy mélange of orange, a touch of pear, lime, a boatload of slate, bee pollen, gentle notes of the petrol to come and a vibrant topnote of citrus zest. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and racier than AP #5, with great cut and focus, excellent mid-palate depth and a wonderful weaving of vibrant fruit tones and superb minerality on the very long and delineated finish. Great Spätlese. (Drink between 2015-2040)"
