I currently have a backlog of notes to write up. Here is a short adaptation of some scribbled notes I made back in January.
Dr. Bürklin-Wolf, Pinot Noir 2012, Pfalz
Dark ruby with hint of brown on the edges already. Fresh in the nose, however, with the initial whiff of warm squash balls as well as minty notes. Then raspberry and hints of blackcurrant.. Great structure on the palate. Stemmy, minerally (yes, I know …), raspberry, elegant, good finish.
Surprisingly excellent from a winery known more for its world-class dry Rieslings.
