The Bürklin-Wolf estate is based in the Mittelhaardt, the quality core of Germany’s world-renowned Pfalz, around the towns of Wachenheim, Forst, Deidesheim and Ruppertsberg. Here with 85ha under vine they have the largest family owned wine estate in all of Germany originating in 1597, with a treasure-trove of superb vineyards, at the centre of which lies the great Kirchenstück. Here in the tiny village of Forst, Kirchenstück and its neighbours Jesuitengarten, Ungeheuer and Pechstein, have for centuries been recognised as producing not only some of the world’s greatest dry Rieslings, but simply some of the world’s greatest wines. In the nineteenth century, prices for these wines exceeded the prices paid for 1st Growth Bordeaux and Grand Cru Burgundy.This tiny 0.4 hectare vineyard holding was planted in 1991 and is located high on the slope in the village of Wachenheim above Gerumpel. The total size of Altenburg is just 1.22ha and the steepness of the slope which edges on to the forest also means this is the coolest site of the all the Bürklin-Wolf vineyard holdings. The vineyard has very meagre and stony soil and excellent drainage giving a wine of real density with fine acidity giving structure and finesse and great ageing capacity. Wonderful acidity giving a seemingly endless finish.

About the wine

Tasting notes

Complex fresh-herb and floral nose with a reserved mirabelle aroma, the emphasis firmly on the mineral side, and all packed into a sleek silhouette. Needs some time, but very good aging potential. From bio-dynamically grown grapes.

The Grape


A very special white grape variety that makes aromatic, age worthy and incredibly fine wines that are loved by wine connoisseurs the world over. Made most famous for the exceptional expressions that come out of Germany, Riesling epitomises white wine of elegance, finesse and complexity. From bone dry to intensely sweet, there's a broad spectrum of expressions ranging from lean and crisp flavours of lime, green apple, pear, jasmine and chalky minerality, to richly flavoured and highly perfumed expressions with Thai basil, saffron, ginger, papaya, nutmeg and honey. Incredible wines and alway good value!
