Weingut Willi Schaefer en primeur

Back to producer list Grower profile As in most of Germany, there was damage in April, but the real catastrophe came on the 1 August. During the night, a spell of rain softened the grape skins, which were then hit by gentle hail that fell between Graach and Bernkastel. In the morning the damage was not obvious, but by the afternoon the colours of the berries began to turn. Dry weather meant that the affected grapes dried out and fell to the ground, but the effect on yields was dramatic. Further complications came with an onset of rot in late August and September, forcing careful selection during the harvest, which began on 25th September. Fortunately, it was cool for three weeks during picking, which gave more time to select ripe bunches and individual berries. The results are amazing: clear, pure and racy wines that show the Mosel at its best. In short, an excellent vintage.
