In 2014, Martin Foradori Hofstätter seized the welcome opportunity to revitalize the historic “Weingut Dr. Fischer” on the Saar. The small, internationally acclaimed winery cultivates Riesling in the top class, steep sites “Ockfener Bockstein” and “Saarburger Kupp”. This concavely curved vineyard slope surrounds the tiny wine village Ockfen like a natural amphitheater.
The estate achieved international acclaim with the “Ockfener Bockstein”. Its steep south and southwest facing plots are comprised primarily of grey slate. The soil and climate are ideal for clearly structured, mineral, delicately fruity Rieslings.
By integrating the Steinbock” selection wines into the portfolio, Martin’s focus is to capture the essence of the Saar in top cru vineyards, while also offering great expression and value.Visit Brand Website
This Riesling is the excellent entry-level wine in the quality hierarchy of wines of designated origin. The wine appears in an intense straw yellow color, with a bouquet of the classic Mosel – “slate note” and with an accent of the fresh notes of citrus fruits.
