Schafer-Frohlich, Riesling Kabinett Bockenauer Felseneck, 2016

$32.99
"Picked ahead of even this year’s generic Riesling, this delivers scents and infectious juiciness of fresh lime, apple and white peach with cooling mint and fennel as well as crushed stone and pungently smoky struck flint accents. At 9.5 grams of acidity, there is a vibrant and animating cast to the wine’s buoyant, subtly silken palate. Invigorating nips of cress and mouthwatering mineral minerality add to the irresistible appeal of a vibrant, refreshingly sustained finish. 92pts" -- David Schildknecht, Vinous

Schafer-Frohlich

For a long time, Tim Fröhlich's name has been synonymous with quality Riesling from the Nahe. These wines are as exceptional as they are exciting. While what's being made is undeniably a most classical expression of what Riesling can and should be, Schäfer-Fröhlich's wines are made naturally from spontaneous fermentation, by people who care about wines that express the mineral character of their terroir, people who care about dry Riesling... all forward-thinking ideas.

Tim Fröhlich's wines are not only special as a result of his winemaking prowess, but also for the terroir he has inherited. The estate's holdings include vineyards of volcanic soil (pretty rare for Germany), as well as the much-prized Blue Devonian slate that characterizes the soil in GG vineyards throughout Germany. Again, the magic of this producer comes from having one foot in tradition while stepping forward with his eye toward what might excite people next.
