Description

This estate was established in 1849 by Franz Peter Buhl. At the start of the 20th century, Von Buhl wines commanded higher prices than top Bordeaux or Burgundy! Yet, as with the vast majority of German wine producers, this Estate slumped in the 70s and 80s, underperforming despite having some of the best vineyard sites in the region. Over the last fifteen years, Von Buhl has managed to return its wine quality to the highest levels. The Estate’s impressive portfolio of vineyards is principally located in the villages of   Forst and Deidesheim. The vineyard specific wines are very impressive while the entry level Qba is ridiculous value.

This is the entry point to the wonderful wines of Von Buhl and it is a cracker! Chalky, dry, powerful with dense tropical fruit and white peach. Floral notes, pepper, dark stones. This is a pretty serious and complete wine that punches well above its quality level. I’d drink it soon, but no hassle if you forget about a few bottles for 5 or more years. Try with baked fish, white meats or mild firm cheese.

Riesling – One of the world’s most noble varieties and known transmitter of terroir. Riesling is an important variety for quality wine production although only makes up approximately 4% of the planted area. Wonderful wines are found in Germany, Austria, Alsace and Australia. They can be as dry as any wine you’ll taste or super sweet and luscious. It is a wonderful grape. See more about Riesling here.

Trocken – ‘Dry’. It means the wine has little to no residual sugar. It will appear to be lighter, more acidic and less fruity then a wine with some residual sugar.

Pfalz – Situated on the Rhine River, Pfalz is often not mentioned in the same breath as Rheingau, Alsace or Wachau for great Riesling. Yet the dry Riesling from this region lacks nothing when it comes to powerful, structural and complex dry Riesling. This is where to go for great value Riesling that will age for the long term.
