Appellation- Gutswein Vdp
Grape- 100% Riesling
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.
Winery- The wine was fermented in temperature-controlled tanks and the fermentation stopped to leave a small amount of residual sugar.
Taste- Delightful light in body yet packed with zingy grapefruit and floral flavours. A touch of natural sweetness is balanced by the mouth watering acidity.
