(2015 Vintage) Delicate aromas of apricot, clove, pine nuts and lemon oil. The alluring tropical fruit flavors are nicely balanced by crisp, clear, spicy acidity on the palate. Refreshing, captivating, long finish. One of the top kabinetts of the vintage
Wine & Spirits(2007 Vintage) The whiff of yeastiness in the nose of Weis's 2009 Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Kabinett (from the original Neuwied vineyard) proves perfectly delightful as an accent to apple and orange blossom; pineapple and cherry, all of which persist on an ultra-refreshing, generously juicy, delicate palate whose saline and seemingly crystalline mineral notes make for uncontrollable salivation. Look for 15 or more years of delight from this quintessential Kabinett and outstanding value, whose sweetness seems impeccably balanced despite its fully 50 grams of residual sugar. Despite Weis's read more...laudatory comments about Bockstein this vintage, he still sells its wines at the customary lower price than those of Goldtropfchen. (hide)
