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.
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.
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.
Unctuous and surprisingly rich for the site, this blends fresh, floral aromas with appley acidity and a subtle touch of spice.
A vivid Riesling that crackles on the palate with fireworks of black currant, violet, lime and slate. There's also a savory aspect that lingers on the finish. Best from 2010 through 2020.
