Schäfer-Fröhlich - Riesling fiesta to shellfish

Wine tipsPosted by Per-Olof Diderot Sat, August 12, 2017 14:48:19

The summer holidays are over and the wine blog is back in full force after traveling to Franciacorta and the Amalfi Coast, where we had exciting and memorable meetings with several biodynamic producers who impress greatly, but more about this in the fall.

Shellfish party
What do you prefer to drink at the shellfish party? Many people prefer beers and aqua vitae. Well, in my case I will prefer wine for obvious reasons. The more you focus on extra tasty crayfish and other shellfish for the party, the less alcohol is strongly recommended.

Now it's time to find good wines for the purchased crayfishes that are already on thawing. Here comes a proposal for a super yummy Riesling at an affordable price. Usually half-dried wines are recommended for crayfish, but it's easy for me to choose this wunderbar Riesling. If you also serve shrimp, then happiness is made.

Schäfer-Fröhlich is owned by the Fröhlich family. Vinmaker is German wine oracle Tim Fröhlich. Based in Bockenau, the Frölich family runs a 20 hectare vineyard, planted with Riesling 85 percent and 15 percent Burgundy varieties. The magnificent steep slopes Bockenauer Felseneck, Strömberg, Monzinger Halenberg and Frühlingsplätzchen, Castle Felsenberg soils are the foundation for this unique wines. The symbiosis of Riesling fruit and the typical minerality of the area gives these wines their characteristic complexity and deep mineral character.

Bright yellow and with aromas that play in their own mineral league. So many lovely minerals layers together with pineapple, peach and a touch of orange flower.

The taste is sensibly well-filled with mineral aromas which are truly a fingerprint for all Schäfer-Fröhlich Riesling wines. The acidity is perfect and very pleasant along with citrus in different taste layers, green apples and pineapple. In conclusion, the wine is a seductive cover in the palate, and stays long for my great pleasure. Once again, this highly skilled producer confirms that the classic minerals you are looking for, so you will always find the right wines from Schäfer-Fröhlich. Without the least hesitation in winning this year's wine at @wineblogg.
