Weingut Schäfer-Fröhlich en primeur

Back to producer list Grower profile Tim regards the 2017 as a top vintage, one of the most elegant ever. Vegetative growth is always a little behind in elevated Bockenau, so there was almost no frost damage. The grapes were healthy, and the onset of botrytis in October produced some fine late-harvest wines, including a massive 250 Oechsle TBA.

2018 Felseneck Kabinett (SFRO11218A)
The first grapes to be harvested give a bright wine bursting with energy. It has a touch of yellow but consists mainly of cool, green fresh fruit with zingy citrus notes and a streak of smoky slate.

2018 Felseneck Spätlese Goldkapsel (SFRO29218A)
As every year, the grapes were picked on the same day as the regular Spätlese, but from 55-year-old vines in the steepest, south-facing part of the vineyard, giving an altogether more intense wine. It is smooth, elegant and fresh, with lively green fruit and a gentle persistent spicy slate finish.

2018 Vulkangestein trocken (SFRO66218A)
From 30-to-40-year-old vines in Felsenberg and Stromberg. A cool green note freshens the rich floral fruit tinged with yellow, and there is bright acidity and a long complex hot mineral finish.

2018 Bockenauer Schiefergestein (SFRO70218A)
From 30-to-40-year-old vines in Felseneck. At first impression creamy and rounded, but it is tautened by cool green fresh nettle flavours complementing the yellow fruit, and slaty citrus notes that lead to a long, dense flinty finish. Most growers would be proud to class this a GG.
