2021 Dr. Bürklin-Wolf Gaisböhl Grand Cru
Bürklin-Wolf owns vineyards in the most famous "Lagen" of the Mittelhaardt. The company owns vineyards in different Layers (vineyards) in the towns of Forst, Deidesheim, Ruppertsberg and Wachenheim. Bürklin-Wolf uses the Burgundian model of the quality pyramid for the classification of dry Riesling wines. In this model, terroir, yield and degree of ripeness of the grapes are taken into account, so Grand Cru (GC) and Premier Cru are used. Bürklin-Wolf is a member of the VDP (Verband Deutscher Prädikats- und Qualitätsweingüter) but nevertheless does not use the term Grosses Gewächs.
The Burklin Gaisböhl GC is pure, fresh and flinty/mineral on the lemon-scented nose. Juicy, spicy and salty on the palate, this is an intense but pure almost weightless dry Riesling with a mineral structure. The finish is intense and mineral but also juicy, with concentrated fruit flavours. A promising classic
The winery Dr. Bürklin-Wolf is the sole owner of this 7.6 hectare estate of which only 5.2 hectares are classified as a GC site. The origins of this location date back to the High Middle Ages. Historically, the name Gaisböhl refers to a former castle located on a hill. The southern location at the foot of the Mittelhaardt benefits from the favorable microclimatic advantages. terrace gravel deposits with clay in the soil give the Gaisböhl its fine acidity and the red sandstone makes it particularly durable and mineral. Analysis: Alcohol: 12.5 % vol. Acid: 8.1 g/l Residual sweetness: 2.6 g/l

The roots of the Dr. Bürklin-Wolf go back to the 16th century. The winery, with 86 hectares of vineyards, is one of the largest private estates in Germany and has been managed since 1992 by Christian von Guradze together with his wife, the heiress to the family winery. Although it had been known for its Auslese and Trockenbeerenauslesen for some time, the focus of production shifted to dry white wines, mainly vinified from Riesling. The total production concept of the traditional company Dr. Bürklin-Wolf changed fundamentally and led it back to the top of the Palatinate wines in particular through an extreme focus on quality. The cultivation of the vineyards has been converted since 2005 in accordance with biodynamic guidelines.
