Bockstein
Spätlese VDP.GL

Riesling with a fine fruity taste profile.

The Ockfener Bockstein, undisputedly one of the most valuable Riesling vineyards in the world, rises majestically in a narrow side valley of the Saar. The crowning glory of this hillside is the minerality of the barren sandstone soil and skeleton-rich Devon slate soils. The delicately spicy Riesling produced here has excited connoisseurs for centuries.

Expertise

In the glass this wine is bright gold paired with a delicate green shimmer and the bouquet a somewhat cool, fine minerality with slightly smoky accents. The fine scent has noble floral notes paired with full-bodied yeast and passion fruit. On the palate, a balanced character with a distinct sweetness, contrasting with a lively acidity, giving this wine a good longevity.

Reviews

92/100

Light green-yellow. Elegant bouquet, of good intensity, characterized by spicy and fruity notes. Charming start, slightly lively and refreshing. A late harvest gives it a juicy fruit intensive finish. A seductive, elegant wine that actually offers real pleasure and quite good potential. Drinkable until 2033.
