The 2020 Graacher Himmelreich Spätlese offers a remarkably coolish, very bright, precise and delicate nose of very fine Riesling fruit and flinty slate aromas. Saline, perfectly round and refined on the palate, this is a filigreed but lush and oh-so-delicate and airy, virtually celestial Himmelreich with crystalline, highly delicate acidity. This is a pristine, light yet long and saline, incredibly frisky and elegant Mosel Spätlese whose clarity and finesse is mind-blowing. An incomparable beauty. 7.5% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine from AP 02 22 in July 2022. --SR, The Wine Advocate

Rare is it to have a wine of such impeccable balance that it becomes impossible to break it down into its individual elements. Even more rare is to have that wine be a Spätlese. Yet there we are. And here it is. Cool, radiant aromas of pure citrus sunshine. Meadow flowers, vineyard peach and through it all a long, thriving stony energy. A cool site, in a cool year. As only the Mosel can do. --(PS), Jancis RObinson

The concentrated and almost enveloping peach and apricot fruit, together with the racy acidity and the enormous herbal and mineral freshness, make this a dazzling Spatlese. Very pure finish, with a delicate note of floral honey, but only a hint of sweetness. Drink or hold.--James Suckling

Vintage 2020 started with a mild winter, but also some good humidity. Budbreak and flowering happened early in April / June and summer continued through September. Overall, this vintage had more sunshine hours than ever. Harvest began on 17th of September and ended on 21st of October, rendering healthy grapes with moderate sugar levels and good acidity. All Prädikate from Kabinett to TBA were harvested and quantities were better than in 2019. Graacher Himmelreich, located further west, slightly less steep and deeper soils than Wehlener Sonnenuhr, weathered gray slate soils with good water reservoirs
