"the 2015 Goldkapsel Spätlese this year hails from a similar section of the vineyard and the grapes were brought in on the same day, but this is an old vine selection of forty-five to fifty year old vines. The wine is very, very pure and saw no botrytis, delivering a superb aromatic constellation of white cherries, citrus zest, a gorgeous base of slate minerality, white lilies and an exotic touch of gentle spice tones in the upper register. On the palate the wine is medium-full, pure and even racier than the “regular” Spätlese, with a more reserved personality out of the blocks, excellent focus and grip and simply stunning mineral drive on the very long, dancing and impressively delicate finish. Great juice. 2020-2050"

Product Description:

"“Tim Fröhlich was in an extremely good mood as he pulled back the curtain on his stunning range of 2015ers.... The first Riesling grapes for the dry wines were brought in on the 10th of October this year and parcels were collected as they reached optimum ripeness over the course of the next thirty days, with the very last selections for the GG bottlings being brought in over the course of the first ten days in November. Contrast this with the harvest of 2014, when everything had be to be brought in between the 29th of September and the 19th of October, due to inclement weather and the pressure of rot and it is easy to imagine how much more relaxed the picking was here in 2015. Given fully six weeks to harvest in leisurely and precise fashion, it is not surprising that each and every Schäfer-Fröhlich 2015er that I tasted was showing beautifully and this seems likely to be one of the greatest vintages in the career (thus far) of Tim Fröhlich" John Gilman
