John Gilman (View from the Cellar): “Along with a few of the GGs from Klaus-Peter Keller, the Schäfer-Fröhlich Felseneck is probably the greatest dry Riesling produced in 2015. This young wine is the stuff that legends are made from, as it soars from the glass in a blaze of grapefruit, tangerine, kaleidoscopic slate minerality, a touch of lavender, wild yeasts, citrus peel, dried flowers and plenty of upper register smokiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and laser-like in focus, with a rock solid core, great cut and grip and a very long, seamless, nascently complex and electric finish. Sheer brilliance. (Drink between 2024-2065)” 98/100 pts

Vinous (David Schildknecht): “Lime and grapefruit, crabapple and red raspberry in the nose anticipate the bright, juicy refreshment that then arrives on a gripping, energetic but alluring, satin-textured palate. Not that mineral complexity fails to be anticipated in the aromas. Salts, alkali, iodine and stone engage in kaleidoscopic finishing interplay with intense fruit in a mouthwatering, shimmering, vibratory finish. The sheer sense of energy and penetration here are remarkable. They raised gooseflesh for this taster, and would almost certainly have left my tonsils – if I had any – quivering in synchrony with my tongue. Imagine the future that awaits this wine!” 97/100 pts

Wine Advocate (Stephan Reinhardt): “The grapes in the Felseneck were a dream in 2015,” says Tim Fröhlich and in fact, the 2015 Felseneck Riesling GG opens with an enormously deep, precise and flinty bouquet. On the palate, this is a rich, powerful, very complex yet pure, refined and silky-textured Riesling of great piquancy and persistency. 97/100 pts

James Suckling: “The gloves are off! As usual this is the star in winemaker Tim Fröhlich’s large portfolio of GGs, and it always needs a lot of aeration to open up. Very smoky nose with grapefruit zest and peach skin aromas of hardcore intensity. Great concentration and power, but also brilliant acidity that lifts and energizes all that. Still very challenging, and will need until at least fall 2017 to show its best, but then!”  95/100 pts

Falstaff: “In der Jugend stets vom Böckser gezeichnet, sind Fröhlichs Weine immer Lektionen in Langmut und Antizipation. Mit saftiger Gelbfrucht am Gaumen und würziger Art hat er einen quicken Säurenerv, wummernde Mineralik, noble phenolische Struktur und Länge.” 95/100 pts
