2020 Dr Burklin-Wolf Dry Riesling. Pfalz, Germany. 750ml.
Pristine citric and stone-fruit aromas with a touch of mineral on the nose, ample body and texture with fresh acidity in the mouth, a crisp middle and long dry finish, with a hint of spice. The perfect introduction to dry Pfalz Riesling.
Hand harvest and whole-bunch pressing with oxidative handling of the juices into mostly large old foudres for fermentation with indigenous yeast on fine lees for nearly 6 months.
‘Open pear and reine-claude plum nose with delicate baking-spice aromas!. Generous and well-structured palate with a long, refreshing finish that’s supported nicely by a touch of chalky tannin. From bio-dynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.’ 92 points, Stuart Pigott, JamesSuckling.com, July 2021.
