2017 FELSENECK Kabinett [14 18] (SFRO11217A)
Harvested early from a parcel favoured by the afternoon sun, this year it is delicately fresh and ripe with cool green notes as well as grapefruit, lemon and riper stone-fruit in the background. It is very zingy indeed, and the minerality on the finish makes it taste almost dry. A fabulous Kabinett.
2017 FELSENECK Spätlese [15 18] (SFRO21217A)
Harvested two weeks later than the Kabinett from 35-year-old vines, this is zingy, cool and green with a lovely spicy mineral freshness and a flourish of ripe yellow fruit on the lemony finish.
2016 FELSENECK Spätlese [16 17] (SFRO21216A)
Harvested two weeks later than the Kabinett from 35-year-old vines, this has meltingly ripe yellow fruit allied to masses of bright energy, and finishes on a strong mineral note.
2017 FELSENECK Spätlese GK (SFRO29217A)
As every year, the grapes were picked on the same day as the regular Spätlese, but from older 55-year-old vines in the steepest, south-facing part of the vineyard, giving an altogether more intense wine. There are dark smoky slate notes, clear bright citrus flavours and a cool green spicy finish.
2017 FELSENECK Auslese (SFRO33217B)
50% of very clean botrytis gives richness, but not at the expense of freshness, which it has in spades. There is yellow tropical fruit and a lovely pure minerality that lasts forever.
2011 BOCKENAUER FELSENECK Auslese [22 12] (SFRO33211B)
Still fermenting during our visit, and not tasted.
2016 FELSENECK Eiswein (SFRO54216B)
2017 NAHE Riesling trocken [07 18] (SFRO64217A)
According to the winemaker, the most elegant estate wine he has ever made. Coming from young vines in top sites, there is lovely precision and elegance in the bright lemony fruit and the long slatey finish.
2016 NAHE RIESLING trocken [05 17] (SFRO64216A)
Made from young vines in top sites, this is powerful, rich and rounded, with a long vibrant finish.

Perfect juicy balance here, showing peach, citrus and a dash of blackcurrant, and finishing with a delicious pithy flourish.
2017 VULKANGESTEIN trocken [09 18] (SFRO66217A)
From 30-to-40-year-old vines in Felsenberg and Stromberg. Loads of energy is this fresh juicy, mineral-driven wine that has ripe citrus fruit and a long creamy finish.
2016 VULKANGESTEIN trocken [10 17] (SFRO66216A)

2015 VULKANGESTEIN trocken [09 16] (SFRO66215A)

2014 VULKANGESTEIN trocken [07 15] (SFRO66214A)
From 30-40 year-old vines in Felsenberg and Stromberg. Pithy, smoky notes marry with peach and a delightfully fresh grapefruit note. Blackcurrant flavours follow, and there is an elegant mineral heat on the fresh finish.
2016 BOCKENAUER SCHIEFERGESTEIN [12 17] (SFRO70216A)
From 30-to-40-year-old vines in Felseneck. Flinty, perfectly poised and fine: this is easily at a GG level of intensity and elegance.
2014 BOCKENAUER SCHIEFERGESTEIN  (SFRO70214A)
From 30-40 year-old vines in Felseneck. Steely smoke and spice flavours mingle with pure fresh peach and greengage fruit. At this level the finesse is extraordinary, and a juicy lemon and earthy mineral finish rounds it off perfectly.
2013 BOCKENAUER SCHIEFERGESTEIN [15 14] (SFRO70213A)

2012 BOCKENAUER SCHIEFERGESTEIN [12 13] (SFRO70212A)
From young vines in Felseneck. Ripe generous fruit, predominantly grapefruit and lemon at this stage, with a seductive smoky mineral element as counterpoint. Lovely complexity and an ethereal elegance.
2011 BOCKENAUER RIESLING VOM SCHIEFERGESTEIN [11 12] (SFRO70211A)
Very fresh, ripe and soft, with clear peach and pithy grapefruit flavours. Very long salty finish.
2017 STROMBERG GG [21 18] (SFRO76217A)
The steep rocky volcanic soils of Stromberg host the estate's oldest vines, with half over eighty years old. The wine is gentle, pure and seamlessly fine, with a dense core of energetic ripe yellow fruit, vanishingly fine smoky mineral flavours and a long juicy finish.
