T he name Schafer-Frohlich carries a lot of weight these days. After nine generations of winemakers in the family, Tim Frohlich brought things to a whole new level when he took control of the family winery in 1995. Extremely low yields, strict selection in the vineyards and pushing the fruit to optimal ripeness was only the start. What followed was a number of smart acquisitions in some of the best vineyards in the region, which doubled the family's original holdings. Tim went on to become a terroir fanatic, developing the best methods to extract the perfect expression of fruit from each of his six Grosses Gewachs classified vineyards. The wines are truly stunning. ✦ Schafer-frohlich Riesling Trocken vulkangestein 2014 JG 91 » $35 "This is really outstanding in 2014, jumping from the glass in a blaze of grapefruit, lemon, stony minerality, wild yeasts, a touch of smokiness and a vibrant topnote of citrus zest. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish and racy, with a rock solid core, superb focus and grip, nascent complexity and a very long, poised and transparent of the best values to be found in the vintage." (1660207) Schafer-frohlich Riesling Kabinett felseneck 2014 JG 92 » $35 "...absolutely lovely...The superb nose is a blend of tart pear, tangerine, slate, petrol and a lovely topnote of spring flowers. On the palate the wine is medium-full and beautifully filigreed, with lovely focus and grip, a fine core, zesty acids and a long, youthful and perfectly balanced finish. A fine bottle of Kabinett."
