Winemaker Notes

Riesling sourced from the same vineyards as the GG Felseneck. 25-35 year old vines. Flinty, slate-y and spicy with refreshing herbal fruit on the nose, along with hints of apricot and peach. Very complex on the palate with a long mineral driven finish.

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling

The hint of funk (reduction) needs a moment to blow off and twist in the flinty direction. Then the white-peach, grapefruit and cardamon aromas blossom. Very slatey and sleek palate that's extremely focused and pristine. Then the cool and elegant finish slowly lets you back down to earth. From organically grown grapes with Fair'n Green certification. Drink or hold.

Schafer-Frohlich, Germany
Schafer-Frohlich Schafer-Frohlich Vineyard Winery Image
While wine making has been in the family since the 1800's, the winery just recently developed into a rising star over the past few years, adding another estate to the elite in the Nahe region. While father Hans takes care of the vineyards, wife Karin and son Tim are the winemaking team. With a low yield policy (average yield around 50 hl/ha) and the recent acquisition of more great vineyard sites to their holdings, the winery is well on the way to challenge top estates such as Dönnhoff and Schönleber.

The soils in the area consist of Porphyr, Melaphyr, weathered vulcanic rock, and a mixture of red loess, red slate, and blue slate from the devonian age.

While the dry wines are representatives of great quality, the noble sweet wines are among the best of the region. The estate has achieved numerous awards with Gault Millau and other German publications.

The Schäfer-Fröhlich Estate is a member of the VDP Nahe.

Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
