Stromberg Großes Gewächs Riesling 2018

Merry Christmas to all on Delectable! The best drop during our wine squad’s pre-Christmas gathering has to be this masterpiece from Tim Frohlich. Such insane concentration, yet so filigreed and focused. The trademark reduction and vintage's ripeness gave it such an intense jackfruit character. Notes of herbs, spices, and ripe oranges too, as well as hints of mint and white florals. The palate was dense, silky, and straight up powerful, but never heavy - it remained juicy, bright, and saline throughout. And the finish here was just something else. It went on and on, filled with zingy citrus and a smoky, stony minerality. Really impressive stuff here and definitely a worthy contender (vs. Felseneck) for the title of Schafer-Frohlich’s top wine. — 2 months ago

Bockenauer Felseneck Großes Gewächs trocken Riesling 2010

Nose is showing some age.

Palate is green apple, old Riesling, mineral. So fresh.

Mineral spice on The finish.

Some elements of magic. Could be better with more air.

Schiefergestein Bockenauer Trocken Riesling 2021

Great village wine. Clean, precise nose with herbal and mineral notes. Citrus (mostly like) on the palate. Dry, structured, quite saline. Great mineral texture, good acidity — 2 months ago

Felseneck Großes Gewächs Riesling 2022

Wild & funky w exotic fruit (guava, papaya, mango), meadow herbs… with time the precision emerges.
On the palate still with a bit of funk but also amazing minerality and good definition. A naturalistic Riesling. A wild one.

Trocken Riesling 2016

This is wonderful. Beautiful nose and warm aromas of apple, honey, ripened pears and peaches. A zing of lemon with touches of petrol and candle wax too. Drinks very smoothly with just a dash of sweetness, great on a hot patio night. Medium bodied, few acidic components, lots of stone fruit and summertime flavors. Finishes long and chalky, bringing out some strong minerality. — 7 months ago

Dorsheimer Pittermannchen Kabinett Riesling 2019

🏅 Rating 89/100 (3,9⭐)

Off-dry Kabinett. Very floral, delicate. White flowers, honey. Stone fruit. On the palate has some citrus with light bitter finish. Petrol notes are very gentle and almost not traceable, just a hint. Gastronomic wine with only 8.0% Alc. and pleasant fruity sweetness, good for an easy apero or as an accompaniment for pan-asian / oriental food. Residual sugar is nicely balanced with signature Riesling acidity.

PITTERMÄNNCHEN is VDP.GROSSE LAGE classified South facing vineyard in Dorsheim, Nahe with clay slate soils. Spontaneous fermentation and maturation in big 1,200l barrels.
