Winemaker's Notes

The Ockfener Bockstein, a very steep 50° southwest-facing hillside slope, is located in a side valley away from the Saar river where the sun's rays shine unimpeded by any other hills.

Elderflower, lilac, violet, and rose are the floral notes attributed to these wines along with smoky minerality.

These Ockfener Bockstein are the most refined and playful of St. Urbans-Hof's wines.

Critical Acclaim

"Hinting at graphite, this white delivers peach, Golden Delicious apple, warm baking spice and citrus aromas and flavors. It's all matched to a firm, tightly wound structure, with the acidity topping the balance now. There's fine, stony length. Needs time. Best from 2014 through 2035. 600 cases made. "
