Critical Acclaim

"The Schafer-Frohlich 2007 Riesling halbtrocken (entirely from Bockenau; largely from Felseneck, and reviewed at an earlier stage is issue 178) brims with white peach and honeydew melon accented by pungent herbs, tart berries, wet stone, and sea salt. Glossy in texture, and possessed of refinement, clarity, and length such as one can scarcely expect of a generic estate Riesling, this amazing value will remain a delight for at least 5-6 years, as the 2002 has already demonstrated. Incidentally, half of this fermented spontaneously, and half with cultured yeasts. "
