A Paradox of Power and Transparency
2014 Schäfer-Fröhlich Felseneck GG

Year after year, Tim Fröhlich issues some of Germany's best dry wines from the Felseneck vineyard.

Before Fröhlich put the steep blue slate site on the map, it was totally off the radar.

Now, some of the Nahe's most razor sharp and thrilling Rieslings come from this site.

Schäfer-Fröhlich's signature is force and intensity combined with ruthlessly sharp detail. Every edge feels like it's been sharpened and brought into focus.

The 2014 perfectly encapsulates the pull-no-punches style. There's tremendous concentration and presence, but also a rapier-like incisiveness. It's a dramatic wine boasting brilliant clarity and a ridiculous level of mineral complexity, all ending with shimmering length.

Schäfer-Fröhlich has stylistic breadth that few German wineries can equal: a paradox of power and transparency, with an almost cloudlike lightness of being. You don't have to look any further than the 2014 Felseneck to find out how impressive this is.
