John Gilman - View from the Cellar:

“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. ” -John Gilman

Product Description:

"The Gault-Millau/German Wine Guide in 2005 chose Tim Fröhlich as newcomer of the year and just a few years later in 2010 as the youngest winemaker of the year ever. In 1998 he stepped into a virtually unknown estate and shaped it into one of the top Nahe estates in a very short period of time. The estate has ownership in the slate based, quartzite laced sites of Felseneck in Bockenau and Halenberg and Frühlingsplätzchen (red slate here) in Monzingen and the porphyr based vineyards Stromberg in Bockenau and Felsenberg and Kupfergrube in Schlossböckelheim. Tim is a “master” of indigenous yeast fermentation. His Grosses Gewächs wines continuously garner some of the highest scores in Germany and his noble sweets and Eisweins are some of the finest produced anywhere. Schäfer-Fröhlich is a member of the VDP." Winery
