Description

2020 Riesling Wachenheimer Gerumpel P.C. - very limited
The Gerümpel vineyard in the village of Wachenheim is one of Germany's most famous vineyards, first mentioned in documents dated 1429. 13ha in total, Bürklin-Wolf's parcel amounts to 4.44ha. Gerümpel benefits from frequent warm winds, ensuring that the grapes dry quickly after rain, thus reducing the risk of fungal infection. This site is characterised by its capacity to produce healthy grapes, even when they are picked late. Its proximity to the Grand Cru vineyards of Forst (Pechstein G.C. is just over the fence), means that the Gerümpel profits from both the typical weathered sandstone of Wachenheim and the volcanic basalt from Forst.
‘Deep and fine mirabelle, guava and vanilla nose. Concentrated and energetic with bright, stony minerality that lifts the medium to full palate. Very long, exciting finish that shoots off into the distance! Drink or hold.’ 95 points, Stuart Pigott, JamesSuckling.com, July 2021.
