Region Pfalz

The Pfalz is a region of Germany that produces the largest volume of wine due to its warm summer climate and higher cropping vines grown on rolling hills and plains. The region runs parallel to the Rhine river and has 22,00 ha of vineyards spanning 80 km with a wide range of soil types. While it produces a high volume of everyday Qualitätswein “Liebfraumilch” style wines, the Pfalz also produces high quality Riesling that is typically full bodied and dry with ripe fruit characters and signature chalky minerality. In addition to Riesling, the Pfalz also has significant plantings of Müller-Thurgau, Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and the popular German red variety Dornfelder.

Winery DR BURKLIN-WOLF

The Burklin-Wolf estate is based in the Mittelhaardt, the quality core of Germany’s world-renowned Pfalz, located about one hours drive to the north-east of Alsace. Since the 2001 vintage Burklin-Wolf have classified their wines according to the vineyard site (similar to Burgundy) rather than sugar weight (as the 1971 German wine laws dictate). After exhaustive research they discovered that today’s top vineyards are exactly the same as those identified in the 1828 Bavarian Land Taxation Laws. This was a time when these vineyards produced some of the most expensive and highly regarded wines in the world. Aptly, the Pfalz Mittelhardt is the topographical and geological extension of France’s Côte d’Or and Alsace. The Mittelhardt’s best sites are similarly located within a very narrow, sheltered east-facing strip of land. Burklin-Wolf wines are labelled G.C. for the top quality tier of wines and P.C. for the second tier. G.C. wines are produced from yiel

Burklin-Wolf wines are labelled G.C. for the top quality tier of wines and P.C. for the second tier. G.C. wines are produced from yields of less than 45 hl/ha and minimum 12.5% alcohol from vineyards rated first in the villages of Rupperstberg, Forst and Deidesheim according to the 1828 land tax laws. P.C. wines are produced from yields of less than 55 hl/ha and minimum alcohol of 11.5% from vineyards rated second in Ruppertsberg and first in Wachenheim. Grapes are harvested with Spatlese and Auslese levels of ripeness but are fermented to dryness. Since 1998 medium sweet wines are no longer produced by this estate.
