Burklin-Wolf Estate Riesling

Regular price $27.00

Winemaker: Nicola Libelli

Appellation: Pfalz, Germany

Grape Varieties: Riesling

The Estate Riesling Trocken comes from sandstone vineyards on the foothills of the Pfalz mountains, almost exclusively from the village of Wachenheim. These south-facing slopes give the wine a warm, ripe character with a backbone of minerality and fresh, lifted acidity. The Estate Riesling is fermented in a mixture of stainless steel and large oak casks and matured for 4-6 months before bottling in Spring.

Located in Wachenheim, this estate was one of the “Three Bs of the Pfalz”; historically Basserman-Jordan, von Buhl, and Bürklin-Wolf were the most important estates in the Pfalz. Today, Dr. Bürklin-Wolf is one of the finest estates in all of Germany, a certified organic, biodynamic, and family-owned winery with a 400-year history.

Dr. Bürklin-Wolf is owned by Bettina Bürklin-von Guradze, who took over the estate from her father in 1990. Over the next fifteen years, she took steps to improve every aspect of the estate. In 2005, under Ms. Bürklin-von Guradze’s guidance, the estate became the first producer in Germany to be certified by Biodyvin, the biodynamic certifier for Leflaive, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, and 175 other top growers in France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Switzerland. The winery has both a deep history and a reputation for innovation. Today, Bürklin-Wolf produces only handpicked, estate-grown wines on 86 hectares, with 15 different top vineyard sites. The idea is to focus on the raw material, health, and balance in the vineyards using biodynamic methods to produce wines of outstanding quality.
