Schafer-Frohlich Riesling Spatlese Bockenauer Felseneck 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

Focused, graceful, and delicious with intense tangerine fruit and a soul of slate. 40-year-old vines lend gravitas and beautiful tension. Not yet reviewed; 2015 vintage rated 93 points by John Gilman (View From the Cellar): The Spätlese selection in the Felseneck comes from the very summit of the vineyard, with a due south exposition. The 2015 Spätlese is outstanding, as it has great acidity and mineral drive to gobble up the eighty gramps per liter of residual sugar in this bottling. The nose jumps from the glass in a lovely blend of white cherry, pear, bee pollen, a fine base of slate, wild yeasts and dried flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is medium-full, pure and again, marvelously filigreed, with fine complexity and bounce, excellent focus and a long, zesty and elegant finish. Lovely juice. 2019-2050.
