Fine cut and delineation to the lime, vanilla cream and slate flavors in this expressive Riesling. Balanced and vibrant, with a midpalate succulence that cruises to a long, mineral-, salt-, floral-tinged finish. Best from 2008 through 2018.
The 2005 Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Kabinett (with a Kabinett-typical 8.5% alcohol yet hiding its high residual sugar) was fermented and aged in cask whereas the Goldtropfchen stayed in tank. Salted apple, wet stones, and luscious grapefruit combine for a fruit- and mineral-bath character on the palate and an infectious urge for the next sip even before this excellent value wine's finish has died away. The team here - cellarmaster Rudi Hoffmann, vineyard manager Hermann Jostock, and proprietor Nik Weis - continued their streak of highly successful harvests this year, albeit at the price of extremely low yields.
The 2004 Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Kabinett displays a rather simple yet intense nose of green apple and lemon, a crisp, salted apple and lusciously citric palate, and a brisk yet strong and slate-tinged finish. In view of its classic expression of this well-known site and its low price, this offering deserves attention as a good value.
Deep in color, offering floral, tangerine and mineral aromas and flavors. Though light-bodied and bright, this is concentrated, with a lingering, orange-infused aftertaste. Drink now through 2018.
Incredible purity, with shocking flavors that race across the palate - honeyed tangerine, white peach, lemon custard and refreshing, stony mineral. Explosive and clean; the way Riesling was meant to be enjoyed. Pair with seafood, cheeses or Thai cuisine.
Orange blossom, lemon, smoky crushed stone, and pungent lavender are mingled with slight yeastiness in the nose of Weis's 2007 Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Kabinett, whose relatively high 9% alcohol (a legacy of sheer ripeness) does not prevent it fulfilling its duty as Kabinett to be delicate and engagingly juicy. Fresh apple and a lick of salt in the penetrating, pungently zesty finish enhance the refreshment offered by an excellent value that will no doubt give pleasure for close to a decade.
Ripe, creamy flavors of apple jam, peach syrup and tropical fruits are full and heady, held firmly in place by racy acidity.
