All wines stored at 55° and 70% humidity
There's no producer in Germany who's seen a meteoric rise to stardom like that of the Nahe's Tim Fröhlich. In 2005 he was named Newcomer of the Year by Gault-Millau, and in 2010 their Winemaker of the Year - the youngest ever to receive the honor. The range at Schäfer-Fröhlich has somehow continued to improve even from the estate's magical vintages produced over the past decade.
"One has to work hard to work out the individual character of a site in Tim Frohlich’s very young Grosse Gewächse as they all tend to be close to each other in their wild herbal exuberance, but I seem to detect an individual interpretation in the Frühlingsplätzchen, with aromas of sage and mint. Relatively speaking, on the palate the wine appears almost a little lighter and softer than some of its siblings, even grapefruit gets a look-in with a refreshing citrusy quality."
