2017 Markus Molitor Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Spätlese White Capsule Mosel

SKU #1458711 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Riesling Ockfener Bockstein Spätlese (White Capsule) shows a nobly elegant, refined, bright and floral-scented slate bouquet with depth and remarkably fine or subtle intensity. On the palate, this is a finely textured, very elegant, piquant and salty dry Riesling with concentrated, juicy fruit and lingering salinity. It still has lots of ripe lemon flavors but is textured and with remarkable finesse. This dry Spätlese can compete with many so-called "GG" wines and will likely survive most of them. (SR) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Apple and orange blossoms, chervil and cress anticipate the inner-mouth florality and incisive pungency that prevail on a subtly creamy, buoyant and lusciously apple- and pear-fruited palate. Green tea adds to the wine’s intriguing pungency. The vibrantly lingering, bell-clear finish introduces mouthwatering salinity, wet stone, and a stimulating alliance of fruit skin tang with fruit seed piquancy. (DS) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

90 points, Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 21 18. The 2017er Ockfener Bockstein Spätlese (White Capsule) proves rather backward and herbal at first, and only hints at its nose made of pear, apricot, aniseed herbs and smoky slate. The wine is still rather tart and slightly bold on the palate but leaves a very assertive and fascinating feel in the long and ample finish. A kick of acidity rounds off the after-taste." (6/2018)
