”Floral and intense with honeysuckle, white peach, ginger, lime and that unmistakable mineral accent. The dry and bracing palate adds layers of green apple, pear and lemongrass, building towards a complex finish that resonates long, with everything one would want in a Riesling - instantly lovable but will also cellar well. Enjoy over the next three to five years.” - California Wine Advisors

“Rich and mellow, but also deep and mysterious, this is complex and refined with a very long, intense mineral finish. Drink or hold.” - James Suckling (11/17)

Carrying on where her ancestors left off, the key objective is to produce top-quality Riesling wines in harmony with nature. To ensure that the diversity and depth of the terroir could be mirrored and presented perfectly, Bettina converted the entire vineyard area to certified biodynamic methods in 2005, making Bürklin-Wolf the first German member of the prestigious Biodyvin group. The passion to respect the inherited resources, as well as maintain them for her children and further generations to come, is the focal point of all she does.
