Riesling Spatlese Bockenaur Felseneck Schaefer Frohlich 93 Jg 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"While there are not a whole lot of noble sweet wines in the cellars this year, the two Spätlesen that Tim Fröhlich has fashioned from the Felseneck are absolutely outstanding. The “regular” Spätlese offers up a beautifully filigreed and pure bouquet of pink grapefruit, tangerine, slate, bee pollen and a lovely topnote of apple blossoms. On the palate the wine is medium-full, pure and rock solid at the core, with bright acids, beautiful interplay of soil, fruit and floral tones, bright acids and superb length and grip on the focused and flawlessly balanced finish. A stellar bottle of Spätlese...94" JG 04/11 "Pure bouquet of honeydew melon, magnolia and sweet lime. The velvety sweet papaya fruit and salty acidity give this wine an exotic kick. Pure, well-balanced riesling with a lively, elegant finish. This is a spatlese direct from the handbook...93" IWC 01/12
