Dr. Burklin-Wolf is a premier wine producer in the Pfalz region with a stellar portfolio of wines with a strong lean to Riesling (naturally)!

Our exposure to wines from Pfalz has historically been limited, and we were excited to try a sample of the Riesling Trocken courtesy of Wines of Germany for review.

Although this one had a bit lighter flavor intensity on the palate, it hit all the right notes for a beautiful, dry Riesling from Germany!

An Easy Drinking Dry German Riesling

Dr Burklin Wolf Riesling Trocken

This Riesling was pale lemon in color with medium aromas of green apple, pear, nectarine, petrol, wet stone, peach, elderflower, and white blossom.

On the palate it was dry with high acidity, medium alcohol, body, and flavor intensity, plus a medium(+) finish. We had notes of lemon, lime, green apple, wet stone, beeswax, peach, honeysuckle, and grapefruit, plus a slight waxy texture that lingered.

While the notes do not indicate it too much, the medium flavor intensity here felt a bit restrained compared to others we've had. However, the wine was still balanced quite nicely with the acidity and the fact that it was a dry wine as well, so while we could've had a bit more kick in the flavor department, it all came together for an easy-drinking bottle that will please everyone.

German Riesling Food Pairing – Thai Curry

Pfalz Riesling Pairing - Thai Curry

We went for a classic pairing of curry and Riesling for this bottle because we wanted the high acidity to play off the intensely aromatic (and spicy) food. Much like most other pairings of Riesling, the acidity held here and we enjoyed some nice tropical notes with the Riesling while some of the more delicate floral notes were admittedly muted in the process.

Score: 3 / 5

We'd buy a glass of this one.

We'll never say no to a dry Riesling from Germany, and although we prefer slightly stronger flavor intensities, it is hard to say no to such an easy drinking bottle all the same. We'd never say no to a glass of this one!

Dr. Burklin-Wolf is located at Ringstra├če 4, 67157 Wachenheim an der Weinstra├če in Germany. We were provided this bottle for review courtesy of Wines of Germany and enjoyed it in 2024. At the time of publishing, it was available on Wine.com. As always, all opinions are our own.
