2017 Stromberg GG [21 18] (SFRO76217A)
The steep rocky volcanic soils of Stromberg host the estate's oldest vines, with half over eighty years old. The wine is gentle, pure and seamlessly fine, with a dense core of energetic ripe yellow fruit, vanishingly fine smoky mineral flavours and a long juicy finish.

2018 Kupfergrube GG (SFRO79218A)
Kupfergrube - on the site of an old copper mine - is a narrow strip of vineyard between the river and a steep volcanic cliff, and has correspondingly little airflow. The rocks reflect and store heat, and the grapes have riper flavours even when they have the same must weight as those in other vineyards. This year it has produced the most charming wine in the portfolio: it is flowing, effortless and elegant, with red fruits, clearly delineated vibrant citrus fruit and a steely, salty stony finish.

2018 Felsenberg GG [18 19] (SFRO80218A)
Felsenberg's position next to the river makes its vines reach maturity quickly. This also means the vineyard is susceptible to fog, and as the damp air softens the grapes, it is crucial to harvest at the right moment. Tim Fröhlich is all over it, with the result that his wine is less weighty than that of other growers. There is power here, of course, from the rich soils, but the racy citrus acidity keeps it light on its feet, and there are seductive herbal notes on the long fine saline finish.

2017 Felsenberg GG [18 18] (SFRO80217A)
Felsenberg's position next to the river makes its vines reach maturity quickly. This also means it is susceptible to fog: the damp air softens the grapes, so particular attention has to paid to harvesting at the right moment. Tim Fröhlich is all over it: the wine has a frim backbone, and the fruit is cool, with delicate white flower, apple and white peach notes, and bright lime flavours developing alongside the rich dark minerality, which dominates the long juicy finish.

2016 Felsenberg GG [19 17] (SFRO80216A)
Harvested a little earlier than usual, as rain in August caused strong vegetative growth that pushed the ripeness forward. There is both power and elegance here, with yellow stone fruit, ripe grapefruit and smoky flinty minerals. Drink 2019 - 2032
