DR BURKLIN WOLF RIESLING WACHENHEIMER 2016

Wine Region: Wachenheim, Germany

Grape: Riesling

Tasting Notes

Almost a mediterranean year: The mild winter turned into a very warm march after a very humid January and February. With sufficient water, the sprouting took place already in the second half of March. Thus, the foundation was laid for an early beginning of reading. On completion of flowering and at the beginning of berry growth, however, a great dryness persisted, which persisted throughout the berry growth period. The very warm summer brought the first grapes to maturity at the end of August, the main harvest began in early September and was already completed on 22 September, as early as never before. The wines are full-bodied, very well structured and accessible. Due to the optimal grape ripeness we expect very storable wines.
