Unapproachable, cool and aristocratic on the nose, the 2013 Stromberg GG reveals very deep, stony, flinty and mineral-scented aromas of limes and grapefruit on the nose. Deep and almost succulent yet refined and also filigreed in its firm and crackling structure, this intense wine is another great dry German Riesling made for eternity. The Stromberg was never reallocated, so the vines which survived are up to 80 years old. - Stephan Reinhardt

The spontaneous aromas of Fröhlich’s wines do take some getting used to, maybe years sometimes, but once you intellectually manage to penetrate the green wall, you can certainly detect the individuality of the various sites. To me the Stromberg is the racy one, even more so in the 2013 vintage, where acidity is aplenty. Its fresh and crunchy citrus fruit leaves a titillating tingle on the tongue and in my first summing up I noted it down as a racy little number. On second thoughts: forget the little. 18.5/20 (MS)

Taut apricot fruit on the palate, which opens slowly to show spicy, almost razor-sharp acidity. Austere but nonetheless dense and convincing, this is the newest addition to Fröhlich's roster of Grosses Gewächs. -- Joel B. Payne
