Single Post Ockfener Bockstein Kabinett
100% Riesling from the cool climate Saar Grand Cru vineyard. Traditional single-post trellis system used that limits yield, enhances quality, and insures the best possible fruit. Its soils are hard, gravelly gray slate lending a smoky aroma and great minerality to its wines. The extensive forest topping the hill retains water which drains slowly into the vineyard subsoils beneath. Between the forest and vineyard, wild animals such as deer may be seen, alluding to the vineyard's German bock referring to 'buck' and the German stein for 'rock'. The cool winds coming down from the Hunsrück hills influence the grapes' ripening by forcing the them to produce aromatic potential rather than high sugar levels.
