"This is Molitor’s first Domprobst (from ungrafted vines) Riesling on the rocks! Deep, ripe, intense and smoky on the nose, this is an expressive, perfectly ripe, gorgeously lush and stimulating Domprobst. This is a grand cru par excellence that comes along with just 10.5% alcohol." -Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

"Provided with tropical aromas such as passion fruits, the dry 2015 Riesling Graacher Domprobst Kabinett (White Capsule) is deep, ripe, intense and smoky on the nose and is very pure and fascinating in its terroir expression: Domprobst Riesling on the rocks! Full-bodied, round and rich, it is expressive, perfectly balanced and gorgeously lush on the palate and also shows stimulating grip and a lot of salt followed by perfectly ripe fruit flavors in the long, complex finish. It's a grand cru par excellence that comes along with just 10.4 % of alcohol." (WA)

Winery Notes:
This is one of the top sites of Graach, relatively small and facing south-west. Here we own some very steep plots of vineyard with a fine, stony slate soil that is not too dry, and indeed is close to perfection. Full-bodied, slatey wines with great character in the dry range, but also extract-rich late harvest and botrytis grapes with a wonderful acid aftertaste.
