Schafer-Frohlich Felseneck Riesling GG 2020

$175.00

Riveting Riesling, full of detail, drama and stunningly defined intensity. Smoky, earthy, rocky, flinty, herbs dusting the seams. Medium bodied, immense, covering all corners of the palate, the green apple, melon, kiwi and citrus peeking out from the shadows. Such controlled drama, the overall impression I get is of coiled power and hidden pleasures. Expansive and long, finishing tight and textured, almost chewy. Incredibly long lived, and I feel every bottle will unravel new delights. Waters Wine Co

The very refined, flinty and slatey nose pulls you deep down into this astonishingly elegant riesling GG that’s almost bone dry, yet glides gracefully over the palate. Then, life becomes very serious, with a long tunnel through this wild and wonderful, rocky hill country and finally you land in a pit of rock salt at the finish. From organically grown grapes with Fair’n Green certification. Drink or hold. 98 points, Stuart Piggott

The wild and funky fragrance of freshly crushed herbs is the signature tune of both site and maker and pronounced notes of green mint and parsley don’t disappoint. There is a cool freshness about the flavour, which almost cuts the palate. It’s the sappy and zingy taste of freshly crushed greens, supported by the mineral association of wet pebbles, which refreshes the parts other Grosse Gewächse can’t reach. Drinking Window: 2023-2035. 19/20 Michael Schmidt

The 2020er Felseneck Riesling GG, as it is referred to on the consumer label, offers a quite appealing and superbly complex reduction mixing some bakery and pastry elements to orange blossom and lime tree. After some airing, it reveals its sensational nose of citrusy fruits, herbs, mint, cassis, citrus, and plenty of spices. The wine proves razor-sharp on the smoky and straight palate. It has gorgeous energy and intensity in the hugely long and layered finish. The aftertaste brings lemon, yuzu, and salty elements . The purity and vibration of the wine are simply breathtaking. This bone-dry and racy dry Riesling is a must-buy for lovers of the genre. 2025-2033.  95pts Mosel Fine Wines Issue 58 July 2021
