Plumes of saffron, spice & crushed earth accent ripe yellow-cherry & honeysuckle notes in this deeply honeyed spatlese. Equal parts sun-kissed fruit & earth offset by dazzling lemon-lime acidity, it's a deftly balanced wine that offers a pleasantly astringent finish.
-- Anna Iijima

Product Description:

The historic Weingut Dr. Fischer estate is located in Ockfen, a small village in a tributary valley near the confluence of the Saar and Mosel rivers in far western Germany. Written records of winemaking in Ockfen date back to the Villa Occava convent, which was founded in AD 975; viticulture, however, was brought to the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region by the Romans more than 2,000 years ago, according to wine historians.

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.
