Schafer-Frohlich Stromberg Riesling GG 2020

$165.00

Draws you in with expressive aromas of smoke, mushroom, gardenia, sunflower, mint, middle eastern spices, lime, white peach and resin. Powerful and gosh it’s different. Like all of Frohlich’s rieslings, it’s the ‘otherness’ that’s captivating. Fleshy and mineral, sleek and gripping, incredibly complex texturally, that gathers apace to smooth out towards the close. Very difficult wine to put into words. So Riesling, so different. Waters Wine Co

What a complex and refined wine this is. Stunning floral complexity, as well as intense grapefruit and bergamot notes. Concentrated and ripe, but with a firm tannic base and a ton of wild-herb character, this is an extremely expressive riesling GG. Almost silky, in spite of the profound minerality that lights up the sky at the finish. From organically grown grapes with Fair’n Green certification. Drink or hold. 97pts Stuart Piggott

93pts Mosel Fine Wines: “The 2020er Stromberg Riesling GG, as it is referred to on the consumer label, has a rather restrained yet smoky and reductive nose of lime, herbs, mint, greengage, earthy spices, and green apple. The wine starts off on a light fruity and very delicate and almost smooth side on the palate. It leaves a superbly precise and zesty feel in the very long and bone-dry tasting finish. A pungent sense of acidity drives the flavors in the aftertaste and adds raciness to the whole experience. 2024-2033.” 93pts Mosel Fine Wines Issue 58 July 2021

Maybe Tim Fröhlich will be horrified when I mention fresh spinach, but the fragrance is in the best possible taste, a fresh leafy expression before being cooked. On the palate this is extremely juicy but also with a kind of mineral astringency that draws in the cheeks and makes the mouth water. One could be persuaded to drink this now, although it would be sacrilege. Drinking Window: 2023-2035. 19/20 Michael Schmidt
