"A thing of beauty!"
Felseneck Spätlese GK
Spätlese at its Most Refined
Tim Fröhlich's Felseneck Spätlese Gold Capsule (GK) is one of Germany's greatest Spätlese, year in and year out - it's that simple.
Sure, there's more breadth and depth than the regular bottling, but what really makes Schäfer-Fröhlich's Spätlese GK stand out is how refined and how ethereal it is.
And that goes a long way explaining why, vintage after vintage, it's one of our most popular German offerings.
We first introduced this wine to the U.S. with the 2006 vintage and without a doubt the 2012 is poised to be the best example yet.
John Gilman calls the 2012 "a thing of beauty" and that sums it up well.
Tim Fröhlich is without a doubt one of the most skillful and dedicated winemakers in Germany. When you taste his wines in a line-up of German's best, Fröhlich's wines never fail to stand out.
The signature here is force: The presentation is painfully precise, concentrated and ends with a shimmering length.
The 2012 Felseneck Spätlese GK takes all of this and delivers a kaleidoscopic mid-palate of minerals, flowers, layers of citrus zests and red fruits. There's the extraordinary thrust, the razor-sharp edges the house is known for, but also an elegance and a grace.
This is Spätlese in its most glorious form - a don't miss edition of this wine. Against the high bar that Fröhlich sets for himself each vintage, the wines continue to improve each year. The laser-like focus, the incredible complexity and the ethereal nature of the '12 Spätlese GK shows that he's hit yet another level this vintage.
