Critical Acclaim

SP94 Wine Spectator Apr 30, 2006

"Deep in color, with exotic, candied aromas and flavors of lemon, grapefruit, tarragon and honey. It’s an exaggerated style, but very attractive, with tart acidity. Fine length. Drink now through 2025." (94 pts.)

RP95 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 1st Feb 2006

"Approximately one month later, the Bockstein Riesling that remained hanging resulted in a 2004 Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Eiswein possessed of an almost unbelievably intense, spirituous and yet also lightly caramelized apple, brown spices, flowers, musk, and sharply citric set of aromas. With over 300 grams of residual sugar and nearly 18 grams per liter of total acidity, this wine is off the charts both metaphorically and literally, The mouth feel is virtually gelatinous, T.B.A.-like in its viscosity and its bow in a caramelized direction. The taste superficially resembles apple jelly and fresh lemon juice. For all of the potential of something this exaggerated on paper to taste grotesquely out of balance, somehow the palate registers a seamless whole and an elegant, juicy and refined finish. This rocket ship of a wine is going to go into a long, slow orbit for at least a quarter century." (95 pts.)

Mosel

Mosel is home to some of Germany's finest white wines, a majority of which are Rieslings. The region surrounds the Mosel, Saar, and Ruwer rivers, and the soils in the region (full of Devonian Slate) make it perfect for growing Riesling grapes. The resulting wines are known for their aromatic floral bouquets and pronounced minerality.

Germany

The German wine-making tradition is long and illustrious, dating back to as early as AD 800. And for a country just slightly smaller than Montana, Germany produces and consumes a great deal of wine (it's the seventh-largest producer and sixth-highest consumer).

Germany is situated at the most northerly latitude at which grapes can ripen; the winters are cold and the growing season short, all of which, incidentally, are nearly identical to the Finger Lakes Region of New York. Most of its wine regions are situated in central and southwestern Germany. The most significant are the Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Rheinpfalz, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Nahe, Franken and Baden.

The Riesling grape is king in Germany, even though it represents only 20% of total plantings: Müller-Thurgau (a Riesling-silvaner cross) has the most, followed by the red grapes Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Dornfelder. In good years and in the care of master winemakers, Riesling makes one of the greatest white wines in the world, with a perfect balance of sugar and acid, exquisite fruit and fragrance and with considerable potential for aging.
