Schafer-Frohlich Riesling Monzinger Fruhlingsplatzchen Gg 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): The Frühlingsplätzchen Grosses Gewächs comes from one of the steepest parts of the vineyard, though lower down on the hillside, where the soil is hard red slate and the Fröhlich family's parcel of vines here is more than fifty years of age. The 2015 version is outstanding, offering up a deep and vibrant bouquet of grapefruit, tart orange, slate, petrol, wild yeasts, lemongrass and plenty of smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, precise and absolutely rock solid at the core, with superb backend lift and grip, racy acids and laser-like focus on the very long and very classy finish. All this superb wine needs is time in the cellar to fully blossom. 2021-2060. (Mar/Apr 2016)
