2018 Dr. Bürklin-Wolf, Forste, Kirchenstuck GG Riesling Trocken
This Riesling shows aromas of ripe stone fruit, citrus, and mineral notes, with a palate of concentrated fruit flavours, bright acidity, and a long, mineral-driven finish. It is a wine that can be enjoyed now or aged for the next 25-30 years.
2018 A. Christmann, Idig Spätburgunder GG
The 2018 Idig Spätburgunder is an elegant and refined Pinot Noir.
From a small vineyard within the Idig village, located on a south-east slope of a high foothill of the Haardt Mountains, this wine is produced through biodynamic practices, with the grapes meticulously hand-selected and picked into small boxes. The vineyard's soil is composed of limestone, covered by red sandstone terrace gravel that has eroded from above into the Rhine plain over many thousands of years.
With a silky and smooth texture, this Pinot Noir is round on the palate and with intense aromas of ripe fruit, raisin and jammy red fruits.
Balancing out this richness is the mineral freshness, signature of this land, and remarkably fine tannins.
2020 Philipp Kuhn, Kirschgarten Pinot Blanc GG
A top-quality Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), from vineyards in Laumersheim.
The Kirschgarten, literally ‘Cherry Orchard’ in english, is produced in old wooden barrels and left to mature until April using the process of batonnage (stirring the lees) and is a true representation of this high-quality terroir and exceptional craftsmanship.
This incredibly elegant wine has a bright and clear appearance with a pale straw colour.
On the nose, it showcases aromas of ripe pear, walnut, dried apple and a hint of sweet melon on the finish. With a superb mouthfeel, it finds the perfect balance between fresh acidity and minerality.
