Carl Graff is one of the main brands from Valckenberg and presents sweet Riesling wines from famous vineyard sites of the Mosel region, like Graacher Himmelreich
With yields totaling 695,000 hl, winegrowers on the Mosel are speaking of a small harvest and an "autumn of envy." This can be traced back to the weather conditions, which posed a series of challenges for winemakers: frost in spring, extreme dryness and scorching heat with a threat of sunburn and hail in summer and then rain in autumn. On the plus side, those grapes that did make it to the cellars were of very good quality. The hot summer ensured tremendous ripeness with must weights typically hitting 90 degrees Oechsle and ideal acidity values.
