Dr. Fischer 2011 Ockfener Bockstein Riesling
Mosel, Germany

A surgeon by profession, Dr. Fischer originally delegated the management of his wine estate to his wife Gunhild. Today it is helmed by his daughter-in-law Karin, whose aim is to produce dry-style Rieslings. While still offering a generous amount of residual sugar, the 2011 Ockfener Bockstein Riesling seems drier than it really is. Characterized by high acidity and tropical fruit flavors, it is an excellent table wine.
