German Elite - Watershed Vintage:
2021 Schäfer-Fröhlich Stromberg Grosses Gewächs

Posted by Joe Salamone

We've been hunting down Schäfer-Fröhlich's 2021 GGs for months.

The wines of Schäfer-Fröhlich are some of the best in all of Germany. It's already clear that the 2021s will go down as one of the greatest collections of this elite estate.

Today, we're happy to offer the 2021 Stromberg Grosses Gewächs, one of the absolute high points of the collection. 

The top 2021 Nahe dry wines are simply amazing. They possess an incredible impact and shimmering agility. The mineral cut is incredible. 

Since its debut vintage in 2012, the Stromberg GG has competed with the Felseneck GG for the honor of Schäfer-Fröhlich's top dry bottling. The Stromberg is stylistically very different from Felseneck. It's a much more expansive and muscular expression with dark, staining minerality.

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 style works wonderfully with Stromberg.

The volcanic site was purchased from Tim Fröhlich's uncle, which is home to very old vines, including ungrafted vines and vines that are one-hundred years old. The site produces powerhouse wines with verve and intense mineral punch.

The 2021 Stromberg Grosses Gewächs is a mind-blowing bottle. It is shockingly razor sharp, crystal clear, and rigorously defined. They are models of precision and radiant transparency.

For over a decade, we held Schäfer-Fröhlich as one of Germany's top talents. Even with high expectations of both the vintage and producer, the Stromberg is seriously impressive. I'm very happy to have the opportunity to offer.

2021 Schafer-Frohlich Riesling Grosses Gewachs Bockenauer Stromberg Dry

750 ml


Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate: "The 2021 Stromberg GG offers a bright and pure, enormously radiant and earthy/herbal bouquet of crushed porphyry rocks and concentrated Riesling berry aromas intermingled with iodine notes. Great purity mixed with intensity and complexity. Full-bodied, refined and enormously salty on the palate, this is a compact, fresh and challenging dry Riesling with elegant and rich fruit, great density and no makeup at all. This is a bone dry but juicy wine that represents a long-distance runner with salty grip and tension."

Special 4-pack pricing, for a limited time. Use Code: Stromberg-21
