Beschrijving

Morstein: De Spätlese Goldkapsel van Schäfer-Fröhlich kan gezien worden als de fruitige tegenhanger van de Felseneck Grosses Gewächs. Net als de Grosses Gewächs komen de druiven van de alleroudste wijngaarden. Er worden gezonde druiven gebruikt voor de Spätlese en de Spätlese Goldkapsel, dus geen botrytis maar een stralende riesling van een groots terroir.

Vinous (David Schildknecht): “From the estate’s oldest Felseneck vines, this was picked the same day as the “regular” Spätlese and from material that Fröhlich reports was visually virtually indistinguishable. While even glossier in feel and flatteringly creamy, it preserves the same sense of start-to-finish transparency to billowing floral and shimmering stony nuances. The floral bouquet alone is head-turning. Apple and quince, grapefruit and lime exhibit a striking combination of freshness and concentration, with piquancy of pit, pip and honeysuckle stem serving for counterpoint en route to a finish of riveting penetration, near-kaleidoscopic complexity, and exhilarating vibrancy. (The first bottle Fröhlich opened having been tainted – something nowadays blessedly rare at this address – I take this opportunity to mention that the long, optically gorgeous corks he is employing throughout most of his range cost him just shy of two Euros.)” 95/100 pts

James Suckling (Stuart Pigott): “Hard, wild and super-minerally Spätlese, this is far removed from the juicy and rather sweet mainstream of this category. The strident finish is literally breathtaking. Drink or hold.” 95/100 pts
