Winemaker Notes

The wine shows mineral and pear in the nose. On the palate the wine has superb balance, with pure and bright white peach fruit.

Food Affinity: A wonderfully sculpted wine that will go well with lighter-styled entrees or hors d'oeuvres.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

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

View all products

Recognized as a top quality grape here since the Middle Ages, Germany retains its high reputation as a premier source of the finest Riesling. Heavily planted throughout the Rheingau and Mosel, Riesling responds splendidly to these regions’ extreme climatic and topographic challenges. Cold-hardy enough to survive freezing winters, and sturdy enough to withstand the warm sun, Riesling has enough natural acidity to maintain balance, even in wines with the highest levels of residual sugar. While high quality is possible in all points of the sweet to dry spectrum, Riesling typically produces wine with relatively low alcohol, high acidity, steely minerality, stone fruit, citrus, spice and floral notes. With age, Riesling can become truly revelatory, developing unique, complex aromatics, often with a hint of petrol.
