On the palate the sweet notion is a little more restrained and nicely balanced by refreshing acidity. A subtle stony accent on the finish does add a little intrigue.

The 2013 Ruppertsberger Gaisböhl Riesling Trocken GC offers the unwound grandezza and aromatic depth of a great dry German Riesling. The wine is cool and precise on the nose and offers a very distinctive earthy/mineral flavor along with highly elegant stone fruit aromas. Full-bodied, dense and mineral on the palate, this is an intense, elegant and very well-balanced Riesling, which reveals a great complexity, vibrancy and persistence. Though firmly structured, the wine is already stunningly accessible but also very promising.

The fruit on the nose comes across as a little greener with notions of gooseberry and melon, but the palate exhibits substance and opulence. This impressive demonstration of power is completed by more than just a hint of salty minerality.

Hints of fennel and basil accent fresh apple and grapefruit in a lusciously fruited, silken-textured Burklin-Wolf 2011 Ruppertsberger Gaisbohl Riesling trocken GC that despite its low residual sugar in no way comes off as too-dry let alone austere. Smokiness of black tea and piquancy of apple and citrus pips add to the stimulation of a succulent and superbly sustained finish.

A greenhouse-like proliferation of leafing and flowering things greets the nose from Burklin-Wolf’s 2010 Ruppertsberger Gaisbohl Riesling trocken GC, along with hints of cumin and grapefruit rind which persist on a firm, decidedly citric palate underlain by suggestions of wet stone.

From a Burklin-Wolf monopole, the tiny volume of 2008 Ruppertsberger Gaisbohl Riesling GC smells of green tea, fresh lime, and peach kernel. This displays palpable density with buoyancy in the best vintage manner. A rather severe back-end concentration of citrus rind, crushed stone, and dusty pungency may partly reflect the legacy of hail that ravaged Ruppertsberg vineyards twice in a single season, but these characteristics are part and parcel of the wine’s formidable persistence.
Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator (2009): 92/100
Grapefruit and spice notes are wrapped around the taut structure in this firm, lean white, which is dry, with chalk and stone accents emerging on the finish. Medium-bodied and very classy.
