Two simply outstanding producers from Germany in this sampler. From Dr Bürklin-Wolf in the Pfalz we have three dry Rieslings: the Estate, the Wachenheimer village wine and a 'Premier Cru' from the Goldbächel vineyard in Wachenheim as well. Certified organic, biodynamic and vegan, Dr Bürklin-Wolf was originally established in 1597 and as the largest family owned estate in Germany (85ha), it is one of the crown jewels of the Germany wine industry.
From Fritz Haag in the Mosel we have the Estate off-dry Riesling along with a semi-sweet Kabinett style from the famous Juffer vineyard in Brauneberg. And from within the Juffer, a small plot beneath the old sundial (sonnenuhr) gives us the outstanding dry Grosses Gewächs (great growths) Juffer Sonnenuhr, and the deliciously sweet and vibrant Auslese. The Estate can trace its history back to 1605 and today the current proprietor, Oliver Haag, is producing some of the most highly acclaimed wines in Germany. The key to the Mosel style of Rieslings is the varying degrees of residual sugar that is needed to balance the exhilarating natural acidity from the very cold climate.
