For four generations now, the Frey winery has been operating in the heart of the Ober-Flörsheim village, known as the highest elevated municipality in south-western Rheinhessen. The family's roots of vineyard work go as far back as the 18th century and today, grapevines flourish on 23 ha spread over a mosaic of microclimates and soil types from North to South. The winery is operated by the current generation of Freys - Philipp and Christopher, along with their father Stefan. The focus is on organic and selective picking of fully ripe grapes with near-natural fermentation, initiated by native yeasts.

Plush fragrances of yellow plums, white grapefruit and apricot unravel on the nose, revealing delicate herbal undertones as the wine opens up. The palate offers a rounded and subtly viscous texture, packed with marmalade flavours and showcasing impeccable balance between vibrant natural acidity and gentle sweetness. Anchored by a mineral base of crushed chalk, this Riesling demonstrates remarkable potential for continued evolution, despite its current age.

Compliment the complexity of this wine with pan-seared trout dressed with almond brown butter.

Press Reviews

The Real Review

97 Points - Huon Hooke

Medium yellow colour with a lovely ripe stone fruit aroma, rich and not so high-toned, the palate round and soft, rich and fruity with an attractive touch of sweetness and lovely balance. It has concentration, extract and viscosity. Yellow fruits. It resembles a modern GG style. A generous, almost opulent riesling. Sheer hedonism! (This was still drinking well two days later)
