2010 Schafer Frohlich Bockenauer Medium Dry


Here is David Schildknecht’s review:

‘A one-off Schafer-Frohlich 2010 Bockenauer Riesling halbtrocken represents 500 liters from a promising steep parcel in the Stromberg acquired two years ago and among the estate’s first-picked Rieslings of the vintage. (Unfortunately, easily every second old vine there was afflicted with black rot and the entire vineyard was ripped out for replanting after this harvest. Frohlich has high expectations for the site, but it will take some years for young vines to realize them.) This fermented until the end of May, even then leaving behind 17 grams of residual sugar. Narcissus and peony offer an alluring floral dimension to the aromas such as I did not perceive in any other dry wines of this year’s collection. Ripe peach and grapefruit inform a lush palate, and transparently permit subtly smoky, flinty as well as persistently floral notes to shine through in a lingering finish whose sense of invigoration is further enhanced by the chew of apple skin. This impeccably-balanced, outstanding value Riesling should perform well for at least the next half dozen years. ‘ 91 points
