Importer Note:


Graacher Himmelreich directly borders the southern edge of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard. The wines from this site often often challenge those from its more famous neighbor, especially in hot, dry years. Graacher wines  attract with their racy acidity, a pronounced minerality (that reminds of crushed rock) and slightly different fruit aromas and flavours (more in the citrus spectrum). Often, the wines become accessible slightly earlier than the Wehlener Sonnenuhr and are deliciously mouth-watering when young. Looking at the vineyard conditions, the hill faces slightly more westwards than the  Wehlener Sonnenuhr , i.e. it has a more south-west exposure, it is a little less steep and has deeper soils which act as excellent water reservoirs.

Graacher Himmelreich

For us, there is no quality difference between the wines of the Graacher Himmelreich (Kingdom of Heaven) and its more famous neighbour, the Wehlener Sonnenuhr. It is simply a question of style or of terroir. Graacher wines typically offer greater finesse when young and are overtly more mineral noted than those of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr. They often show more citrus and fresh nectarine fruit, as well as a powdery, sorbet-like minerality that strongly differentiates them from the ripe peach fruit and the textural opulence that Wehlener Sonnenuhr wines develop with age. Graacher wines are also typically more accessible when young than those of their more famous neighbour. The slope here faces south-southwest: less westwards than the Badstube but slightly more than the Wehlener Sonnenuhr. The slope is also steeper than the Badstube, but slightly less steep than the Wehlener Sonnenuhr. Finally the soils are also slightly deeper than the Wehlener Sonnenuhr and the gradient varies from 45% to an impressive 65% (so again, more steep than the Badstube but slightly less so than the Wehlener Sonnenuhr). Typically the most mineral tasting wine in the line up.
