The 2015 St. Urbans-Hof Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Auslese is a full-bodied yet elegant Auslese, carefully selected from only the finest and ripest berries in the Ockfener Bockstein vineyard of the Saar. Expressive fruit and gorgeous length deliver a range of complex and nuanced floral notes paired with a subtle and sophisticated minerality.

"This diversely sourced bottling (which has no 2015 Sp√É§tlese counterpart) features heady scents and luscious palate presence of melon and orange liqueurs, papaya syrup and quince jelly. A creamy texture, extravagant ripeness and botrytis ennoblement have not kept this beauty from displaying transparency to stony, saline, white pepper and citrus zest nuances. The ravishingly sustained finish activates the salivary glands and sets the tongue tingling." -DS, Jun/2017

"Plush and spicy, with apple pastry and peach cobbler flavors, flanked by plenty of creamy notes. Fresh acidity emerges on the pure-tasting finish, showing lively savoriness and minerality. Drink now through 2028. 100 cases made." √¢‚Ç¨‚ÄúKM, 12/31/16
