This is the first release of this very special wine. Zickelgarten lies in the heart of the Ockfener Bockstein vineyard on a convex curve of a steep slope. This "monopole" vineyard was once owned by the Kesselstadt firm, but Nik Weis has purchased the missing piece in 2009. Recognizing the unique and superior quality of this parcel, Nik has decided to vinify and bottle this wine separately in exceptional years. It will always be a Spatlese (late-harvest)ripeness release where the intensity and distinctive characteristics of this site are best displayed. Production was limited to 100 cases.92 points from The Wine Spectator.
