Dr. Bürklin Wolf Gaisböhl Grand Cru Monopole
Rich and mellow
Rich and mellow, this Grand Cru by the largest family-owned wine estate in Germany is crisp and refreshing both on the nose and the palate.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
The Dr. Burklin-Wolf Gaisbohl Grand Cru is pale golden yellow in color, reflecting the notes of honey it gives both in aroma and taste. Juicy and aromatic, it also gives off complex notes of grapefruit, apples, and lime, with a lingering finish.
It’s a balanced, crisp, and refreshing Riesling. A truly excellent and elegant drink.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
Pair this elegant Riesling with goat cheese, like our Crottin, or Malagos Chevre. It also plays very well with fresh salads, seafood dishes, and shellfish. Try it with a shrimp and papaya salad, and let its freshness shine.
It will also go great with a sauteed pork cutlets with prosciutto, sage, and lemon. Perfect with spicy food, this Riesling also pairs well with some laksa, or a chicken tikka masala.
For dessert, enjoy it with a peach cobbler, or a berry panna cotta.
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE, ALWAYS
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.
