2020 Burklin Wolf Forster Riesling

2020 Burklin Wolf Forster Riesling



“Stunning nose of nectarine, sliced pear and a touch of fresh pineapple. The power, concentration and depth we associate with the very top sites of the Pfalz, married to elegant balance that makes this immediately appealing. 80% from young vines in the Jesuitengarten “Grand Cru” site. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. ” 94 Stuart Piggott

I am delighted to again be able to offer this wine, as it is essentially comprised of their Forst Grand cru sites, including younger vine replanted Jesuitengarten, Pechstein, and Kirchenstück; it has historically always been sold directly to private customers only. Coupled with the house penchant purity and raw materials such as these, and you’ve got a crazy good and affordable Forst Grand cru animal of Bürklin pedigree……trust me and get a 6pk or a case here…..

“The 2019 Forst Riesling Village is fascinating on the bright, precise and complex, elegant and aromatic nose that represents Pfalz Riesling at its best. Intense and juicy on the palate, this is a stunningly expressive and terroir-driven Riesling at this price. It is clear and vibrantly fresh yet dense, juicy and firmly structured with serious tannins but nevertheless mouthfilling, refined and elegant. The finish is salty and more than decent, and in fact, it is pretty long and tensioned. This Forster Riesling is on 1er cru level and one of the best buys of the vintage. Tasted as a sample in April 2020 and from the bottle a month later.” 94 Stephan Reinhardt for the 2019, NOT THE 2020 OFFERED HERE
