Bockstein - Riesling Spätlese
Allemagne - Moselle
For Roman Niewodniczanski, the Ockfener Bockstein terroir represents an ideal terroir for pushing the maturity of Riesling and developing great wines in late harvest.
The old vines, aged between 50 and 100 years, occupy a very steep hill in the heart of a narrow valley formed by a small tributary of the Saar. Here, the vines are protected from the wind and the micro-climate is quite hot and often humid in the morning. In addition, the slate soils are based on a subsoil of very old sedimentary rock, the "grauwacke", extremely rich in mineral elements (quartz, micas, chlorite ...) which will give the wine freshness and spicy character.
From the first nose, one is captivated by the sophisticated elegance of this fabulous spätlese: parchment, fresh tobacco leaf, ginger, chalk, white flowers, bramble wood, candied lemon, plum, freshly turned earth and many fine herbs ... the harmonious and playful farandole which springs from the glass is impressive.
On the palate, the low alcohol content (8.5% vol.) And the spicy dimension provided by the soil, on flavors of liquorice in particular, give the wine a beautiful lightness and real dynamism. The sweetness is accompanied by a remarkable finesse of texture: never heavy, always crystalline and moving, this Bockstein Riesling Spätlese, with a long and complex finish reminiscent of dragee, is a must on the menu of great sweet.
