Stuart Pigott (Jamessuckling.com): “Full of white peach and flinty character this is a very striking medium-bodied dry riesling with a long, graceful finish that makes it extremely attractive. A great food wine now and for some years to come. ” 93/100 pts

Vinous: “This leads with a remarkably vivid evocation of both wet and crushed stone, along with smoky struck flint, lime, blueberry and grapefruit – impressions confirmed on a polished, generously juicy, palpably dense yet buoyant palate. Accents of citrus zest, the piquant ping of citrus seed, and a suffusion of crushed stone pull the gripping finish in a slightly austere direction, but happily the sense of energy never flags. You can revisit this with pleasure, even awe – and it seems almost relaxed by comparison – after experiencing its more concentrated big brother and dry wine-of-the-vintage – namely, the 2016 Felseneck Grosses Gewächs.” 92/100 pts

Jancisrobinson.com: “Although the nose is not short of ripe stone-fruit aromas, dusty, stony and green herbaceous aromas add a cool fresh expression. There are not many growers who can rival Tim Fröhlich’s demonstration of the differences between Riesling from volcanic soil and from slaty slopes. There’s always more grip in the Schiefergestein, it is quite uncompromising in its exhibition of cool, dusty minerality and crunchy herbaceous flavour. It is not short of peach and apricot fruit, but it’s equally divided between flesh and stone. Cool, taut and with plenty of substance. ” 17/20 pts
