2017 Schäfer-Fröhlich Riesling Stromberg GG

John Gilman: “The Stromberg GG here is often not quite as elegant as the very top grand cru bottlings, but this is not the case in 2017, as the lower yields from the frosts have given this wine a precision I can seldom recall in previous young vintages. The bouquet is pure and complex, wafting from the glass in a superb blend of grapefruit, tart orange, lime zest, ocean-like salinity, white flowers and a great base of minerality. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and racy, with outstanding mid-palate intensity, seamless balance and a very long, focused and superbly complex finish. This is the finest young vintage of Stromberg I have ever tasted from Tim Fröhlich! 2025-2085.”  96+/100 pts

Stuart Pigott (jamessuckling.com): “It’s hard to imagine how a riesling could have a more northerly personality than this cool, delicate and very elegant wine. Great balance and very long, saline finish. From a forgotten, top site that Tim Fröhlich reactivated in 2012. Drink or hold.  96/100
