Watershed Vintage:
2021 Schäfer-Fröhlich Felsenberg Grosses Gewächs

Posted by Joe Salamone

Tim Fröhlich makes some of Germany's best dry wines.

In 2022, I named Schäfer-Fröhlich Felseneck GG my wine of the year. The 2021s at Schäfer-Fröhlich are just brilliant.

Today I'm happy to offer Schäfer-Fröhlich's 2021 Felsenberg GG at as low as $72.95 per bottle. 

It is already clear that the 2021s will go down as one of the greatest collections of this elite estate. Across the range, Schäfer-Fröhlich's 2021s show a dumbfounding amount of purity and cut.

Felsenberg occupies a fascinating place in the Schäfer-Fröhlich GG lineup. It carries the estate's signature of force and intensity combined with ruthlessly sharp detail.

Felsenberg is a volcanic site that combines Felseneck's precision with Stromberg's dark mineral intensity. Felsenberg possesses a powerful and stern core of smokey crushed rock minerality and explosive notes of citrus, herbs, and an intriguing wildness. It delivers punch and finesse.

The 2021 has a very beautiful mineral clarity. Felsenberg is always a powerhouse, but in 2021 the wine has a finesse that we haven't seen in the wine before. The overall cut, precision, and elegance of the wine is impressive. 

It's very rare anywhere in the world of wine to get one of the top wines from a country's elite producer at a relatively gentle price point. In 2021 the Felsenberg is a not-to-be-missed value.

For over fifteen years, Schäfer-Fröhlich has been on our short list of favorite dry wine producers. It's nice to see him nail a vintage so well and produce the best Felsenberg we've tasted.

Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate: "From porphyry soils, the 2021 Felsenberg GG offers a pure yet intense and elegant, darker toned and flinty bouquet of crushed stones with plummy notes, delicate spices and herbal notes. Full-bodied, pure and fresh on the palate, with fine tannins and ripe and refined acidity, this is a lush and round but finely tannic and aromatic Felsenberg with enormously salinity on the intense and aromatic, crisp and crunchy finish. Tasted as a sample at the domaine in July 2022."
