Made with selectively handpicked grapes, and vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel and old oak casks, the Dr. Burklin-Wolf Estate Riesling is a dry, light-bodied drink. It has a pale-yellow color, and is a good balance of fruity and acidic.
This Riesling is very fresh on the nose, with aromas of white peach, green apples, and lemon. On the palate, it is equally bright and fresh, with notes of peach, tropical fruit, and citrus.
Riesling and raclette are a great combination. The mellowness of the raclette plays well with the acidity of the Riesling.
It’s also great with fresh salads, seafood, and shellfish. It shines especially brightly with spicy food. Try it with fish tacos, pad krapow gai (spicy Thai basil chicken), or an Indian curry.
For dessert, enjoy it with a pie, like lemon meringue or apple.
With 110ha of land (85 of which are vineyard) in Mittelhardt, core of the world-renowned region of Pfalz, Dr. Burklin-Wolf is the largest family-owned wine estate in all of Germany.
Founded in 1597, it has produced the highest quality Rieslings for generations. The estate has long been considered a trailblazer and a pioneer in German viticulture, and this has not changed. When Bettina Burklin-von Guradze took over from her parents in 1990, she saw a way to infuse new and fresh energy and creativity in the business, ensuring that their wines find their way onto dinner tables. Without losing the tradition that made the estate so renowned, and rich expressions of their terroirs, Dr. Burklin-Worlf Rieslings are produced in perfect natural harmony. And in 2005, the entire vineyard was converted to biodynamics, ensuring a more economically sustainable process.
This respect for inherited resources, and the passion to maintain them for future generations, is at the forefront—the focal point, of all that Dr. Burklin-Wolf does.
