Pfalz region of southern Germany is warmer than the Mosel and ripens a wider variety of varietals. Its wines tend to be fuller in weight and intensity than most German wine. It is planted with Riesling, Muller Thurgau and increasing amounts of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
The tradition at the Dr. Bürklin-Wolf Estate in Wachenheim dates back to 1597, it is one of the largest and most important estates in Germany. The total vineyard area is 85 ha, a treasure trove of top-rated vineyard sites in the unique landscape of the Mittelhaardt, and it is here that the highest quality Rieslings are produced in harmony with nature, to achieve this, the entire vineyard area was converted to biodynamics in 2005. This ensures that the diversity and depth of the terroir can be mirrored and presented perfectly the wines. The Estate has always been considered to be a pioneer and trailblazer for change in German viticulture. Bettina Bürklin-von Guradze, the oldest daughter of Dr. Albert Bürklin, inherited the Estate from her parents in 1990, and since then has taken the lead at the Estate with her own vision. The passion to respect the inherited resources, and to maintain them for her children and further generations to come is the focal point of all she does..
Situated on one of the top sites in Wachenheim where its origins go back to the late medieval era. The vineyard is on an east-facing slope where it enjoys optimum sunshine and gravel and sandstone soils which impart a mineral character on the wine. The wine is very well balanced with a subtle nose of melon, white peach and lime. On the palate, a prominent flinty minerality is supported by notes of stone fruits, sweet spices and a touch of honey.
Perfect with smoked fish, salads and chicken dishes. Also complements aromatic dishes such as Thai green curry.
