Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator
A terrific spätlese, with a kaleidoscope of berry, lime, sweet corn and mineral aromas and flavors that mingle with the elegant yet firm structure. This is refined, with harmony and a lingering citrus and mineral aftertaste. Drink now through 2020.
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
The weathered slate soils of this steep site are felt keenly in this Spatlese, both in the overt aromas of minerality and in the elegant sense of balance and refinement that this wine projects. Its apricot and kumquat aromas are lively and ripe, but seem almost incidental against the confident expression of soil and place.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Pleasantly plump and custardy in texture, this complex, mouthfilling wine offers a whirl of aromas and flavors, ranging from fresh asphalt to lime custard and green apple. By the finish, any objectionable notes have vanished, leaving a clean, lingering finish beaming with elegance.

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.

Steep and terraced slopes of a sandstone, porphyry, and slate produce some of Germany’s best Rieslings, which are full of pronounced aromas, spice and mineral.

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.
