The Dr. Bürklin-Wolf Estate is one of the most prestigious producers of Riesling in Pfalz, even Germany. They were the first German member of the prestigious Biodyvin, a group dedicated to biodynamic certification.

This particular bottling from the Langenmorgen vineyard in the Deidesheim village is light, balanced, perfectly structured with racy acidity. The vineyard itself is located on a southeast slope of the Haardt Hills, rising about 500 feet at a slope of 14-20%, and a host to varying microclimates offering varied textures and flavors in the final blend. Sourced from a plot closer to the forest with varied temperature fluctuations, the resulting wine showcases lovely aromatics of white fruits like apples, pears and flesh white peaches with notes of zesty citrus, mineralogy and nicely integrated acidity. A delight!

THE STORY TO KNOW

The Dr. Bürklin-Wolf Estate in Wachenheim at Weinstrasse is one of the largest and most important family-owned wineries in Germany, with tradition dating back to 1597. The total vineyard area amasses to 85 hectares – a treasure trove of top-rated vineyard sites in the unique landscape of the Mittelhaardt district. Bettina Bürklin-von Guradze, the oldest daughter of Dr. Albert Bürklin, inherited the Estate from her parents in 1990. Since then she has truly taken the lead at the estate by turning her own vision into a reality and establishing the winery as a pioneer and trailblazer for change in German viticulture. Carrying on where her ancestors left off, the key objective is to produce top-quality Riesling wines in harmony with nature. To ensure that the diversity and depth of the terroir could be mirrored and presented perfectly, Bettina converted the entire vineyard area to certified biodynamic methods in 2005, making Bürklin-Wolf the first German member of the prestigious Biodyvin group. The passion to respect the inherited resources, as well as maintain them for her children and further generations to come, is the focal point of all she does.
