From 70- to 80-year-old vines on volcanic soils, the 2014 Stromberg Riesling trocken GG displays a very clear and stony bouquet with dense white fruit and herbal flavors. The wine is very mineral and piquant on the palate, but also shows the intensity and juiciness from the old vines. It's rich and piquant, round and accessible, and simply great Riesling with a great finish and a lingering salinity. Great substance and power here. - Stephan Reinhardt

From 50-year-old vines that once belonged to one of Tim Fröhlich’s uncles, and a ruggedly and meagerly rocky volcanic soil, this Grosses Gewächs delivers, as its author promised, a sleeker, slimmer effect than those from other volcanic sites. A pungent and intriguing nose incorporates Latakia tobacco, crushed stone, and intimations of black and white currant that go on to inform the polished palate with invigorating tartness and seed-crunching piquancy. The finish is formidably penetrating, and a nearly tidal pull is exercised on the salivary glands by a saline and intriguingly carnal savor to which it is hard to put a more specific name. -- David Schildknecht
