Schäfer-Fröhlich, Riesling Kabinett Nahe 2005

Schafer Frohlich Kabinett 2005
Imported by Rudi Weist and Cellars International, San Marcos CA.

All Halenberg fruit, grown in blue slate and quartz, picked at 92 Öchsle, finished with 45gm/l residual sugar.

This is AP#15.

Ten years on.

Rye straw with a touch of gold.  A wine with reductive sparkle, just a hint of leesiness now.  The nose is symmetrical, fruit-mineral, impeccably defined.  Then rising with amplitude through the middle – solar ’05 making his presence known – dense, swollen flavors of canned peach and confiture.  Finishes lissome and articulate. Exciting Kabinett; not just energetic but dynamic, clever and riven with tension.  Now – 2020+.
