Default TN Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Auslese 1976, Dr. Fischer

The Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Auslese 1976, Dr. Fischer, AP Nr. 3542
013 4 77 was properly stored since release, and had a high fill and
good cork. It is light yellow.

There is much mixed citrus character, with grapefruit, a touch of lime
and perhaps a bit of candied orange peel. Unlike many 76 auslesen from
warmer regions that can nearly pass as BA, this wine has little
tropical character or honey. There is plenty of acidity to balance the
moderate sweetness. The petrol old Riesling character is light. This
is a quite decent and was a good value. I would buy it only from
warmer years, as the Saar wines, with a few exceptions, can be a bit
high in acid in normal years. This area of the Saar Is about as cold a
place as you can expect to allow Riesling grapes to mature in any but
very exceptional years.
