Single-vineyard Mosel riesling for the price of an estate wine? Don't mind if I do...

Böcking Riesling 2015

The Böcking family has farmed the vertiginous slate slopes of Trabarch in the Middle Mosel Valley since 1624. With vines up to 80 years old, the family owns 15 acres of vineyards, with four out of its five sites being rated as Grand Cru - the best of the best. The estate's entire range is superb, but in its 2015 estate riesling we've spotted an especially attractive buying opportunity. In this vintage, for the first time, the fruit was selected from just one vineyard - the Taubenhaus vineyard perched above the picture-perfect village of Trabarch. So essentially, with the Böcking Riesling 2015 (2015, by the way, has been described by some as the vintage of the century in the Mosel), you're getting a single-vineyard wine for an estate-wine price.


For anyone uninitiated in the charms of Mosel riesling - that very special combination of high acidity, laser-focused minerality and invigorating freshness - the Böcking Riesling 2015 is the perfect place to start. And because the alcohol is low, you can drink plenty of it without falling over. Winner.
