TASTE
A statuesque Riesling of classical structure, with very light alcohol yet heaps of flavour, and bright grapefruity acidity balanced by delicate sweetness. From low-yielding vines in a recognised single vineyard, this has power, elegance and beauty in abundance.

PRODUCER

The Fischer family have been cultivating vines in the famous village of Ockfen, on the River Saar, since 1758. The twelve-hectare holding includes a parcel of the Bockstein vineyard, which is classified as a Grosse Lage, the German equivalent of grand cru. The style is classic Saar: racy, grapefruit-scented, delicately structured yet intense. Quality has received a further boost since 2014, when Martin Foradori Hofstätter (of the eponymous Alto Adige estate) became a co-owner of the property.

VINEYARD
The famous Bockstein vineyard is a steeply sloped piece of grey slate, curved to form a south to southwest-facing amphitheatre, and thus capable of achieving excellent ripeness.

WINERY
The wine was fermented in temperature-controlled tanks, and the fermentation stopped to leave forty-one grammes per litre of residual sugar.
