Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
While the Halenberg Spatlese was fermented with selected yeasts, the gauze-like shroud of youthful yeastiness and CO2 give away origins of the 2004 Bockenauer Felseneck Riesling Spatlese A.P. #17 in spontaneous (and, says Frohlich, “endlessly long”) fermentation. This wine is from the highest portions of the towering Felseneck vineyard. The nose clears to reveal yellow and red plum aromas. The palate impression is one of astonishingly vivid fresh plum, dripping with fresh lime, but without the obvious verve of the Halenberg. The mineral expression is a suffusion of salts and infusion of shrimp shells rather than the dynamically diverse range exhibited in the Halenberg. The balance is just extraordinarily poised (despite an unbelievably high nearly 90 grams residual sugar), and the finish pure, sedate, yet endlessly refreshing and satisfying.

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.
