Tim Fröhlich's Schiefergestein bottling is fuller and more present than his estate dry wine, delivering attractive fruit in a dry, but not fierce manner. The aromas soar from the glass - pink grapefruit, flint, potpourri, and a touch of smoke. A quite accomplished dry Riesling of the highest quality without the price. Could function the same as a premier cru Chablis. Shellfish, perhaps?
In 2005, the Gault-Millau/German Wine Guide selected Tim Fröhlich as their newcomer of the year. A few years later in 2010, they chose him as winemaker of the year...the youngest ever. It all began in 1998 when he stepped into a virtually unknown estate, and re-shaped it into one of the top Nahe estates within a very short period of time. Soils in his vineyards are slate and quartz-based. Tim Frohlich is considered among many to be a 'master' of indigenous yeast fermentation. The results are seen in his Grosse Gewachs (Grand Cru) wines, garnering some of the highest scores in Germany. He is also known for his sweet and eisweins (icewines) which are some of the finest in the world.
