Dr. Fischer Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Spatlese 2016
Wines that grow in the Ockfener Bockstein exhibit a floral fragrance reminiscent of elderflower, lilac, and violets and possess nearly salty minerality that is paired with the smokiness of slate. Very good balance between sugar and acidity. Refreshing with fine minerality, delicate fruit, great maturing potential. A nice friend for green salad, steamed mussels in Riesling with herbs. The Bockstein vineyard is located in a side valley of Saar and forms a natural south to southwest facing amphitheatre above the village of Ockfen. Dr. Fischer owns 2.5 hectares. The terroir in this vineyard is ideal: Steep slope, 40 years old vines, roots going 15 feet deep, south-southwest exposure. The soil is comprised predominantly of hard, weathered, gravelly grey slate.
