To all Wine Exchangers,
For those of you who remember our initial offering of this sensational opportunity with the fabulous Dry Rieslings of Burklin-Wolf about a month ago, we just kicked things up a notch.
You may recall us talking about the fact that Riesling, one of the world's great terroir wines, relies upon location, location, location.  The Pfalz has a trocken tradition that the Mosel doesn’t have.  They are located further to the south, meaning a slightly warmer climate to ripen fruit. A couple degrees here and there to a grapevine is huuuge.  The soils are also more, well, soil-y and less slate-y.  So, the wines here have a broader palate and lean more to dried apricot than citrus.  Dry styles work well here.  And not only is the Pfalz a great place for dry Riesling, but 2016 and 2015 were both fine years for the Pfalz as a whole.
Burklin-Wolf is one of the largest and most esteemed estates in the region, tracing its history back to 1597, and one that was capping an upswing in quality thanks to a commitment to biodynamic farming in 2005 and a freak but positive change in winemaking.  For four generations a member of the Knorr family was at the helm of the cellar.  In 2012, however, Fritz Knorr suffered a fatal heart attack and the harvest was thrust on his intern, a 27-year-old named Nicola Libelli who had received his diploma from Germany’s prestigious Giesenheim in 2010.  The rest, as they say, is history.  Libelli has become a dynamic force in Burklin-Wolf’s cellar.
Burklin-Wolf is unique in that it refers to its wines with a Burgundy frame of mind with regards to how they classify them, with their own versions of Village, Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards, all with their own capability for extended cellaring or consumption now.  Today we're focusing on two of their brilliant 'Premier Cru' offerings at some ridiculously great prices.
The Dr. Burklin-Wolf Riesling Trocken Wachenheimer Goldbachel Premier Cru Pfalz 2015 is, as you'd expect with the extra year in bottle, a little showier during these 'early days' for these two wines.  The winery owns just a touch under four acres here with vines that were planted in 1991.
Vinous Media's David Schildknecht writes, "Yellow plum, white currant and lime deliver a penetratingly aromatic and lusciously juicy palate impression. The feel is lean, and piquancy of pits and seeds prominent, but the wine’s juicy generosity of fruit renders it anything but austere. The finish glows with piquant intensity while setting the tongue tingling with its penetratingly bright citricity. ​ 92 points."
The winery also owns the same amount of vineyard from which their Dr. Burklin-Wolf Riesling Trocken Wachenheimer Rechbachel Premier Cru Pfalz 2016 is crafted.  This site is owned in entirety by the winery and the vines, planted in 1971, are also farmed, like Goldbachel, biodynamically.
German wine expert Stuart Piggott, writing for JamesSuckling.com, expressed his love for this one by noting, "A seriously concentrated, firmly structured wine that is neither very fruity nor so earthy or mineral; rather it stands out because these two sides of the wine are beautifully interwoven. Delicate herbal and citrus-peel notes. Better from 2018 and has at least 15 years of ageing potential. 95 points."
Originally $45 retail, we're offering both of these gems at under $20 a bottle.  A better deal on world-class Dry German Riesling you will not find.  Get yours now, stocks are limited...
