Winemaker's Notes

A characterful, juicy, and fruity Riesling from the Saar Valley. This wine was especially late harvested. It has floral notes, such as elderflower and lilac combined with juicy and fruity acidity, something that you find in the Ockfener Bockstein wines year after year. Also, its silky structure reflects the grand terroir of this famous vineyard.

Critical Acclaim

"This is refined, with flavors of peach, lime, mineral and a mix of savory herbs. Delicate yet vivid on the palate, with vibrant acidity driving the finish. There's a hint of vanilla on the aftertaste. Best from 2012 through 2022."
