Dr. Bürklin-Wolf Wachenheimer Altenberg Riesling Erste Lage 2013

Dr. Bürklin-Wolf is an historic family owned estate with a tradition dating back to 1597. They adopt a biodynamic approach to winemaking and have a Burgundy inspired vineyard classification system. The Wachenheimer Altenberg Riesling Erste Lage is sourced from one of the top sites in Wachenheim where its origins go back to the late medieval era. This prized vineyard is on an east-facing slope where it enjoys optimum sunshine and gravel and sandstone soils which impart a mineral character upon the wine. Adopting a biodynamic approach this Riesling is extremely well balanced with a subtle nose of melon, white peach and lime. On the palate, a prominent flinty minerality is supported by notes of stone fruits, sweet spices and a faint touch of honey.
