A founding member of the VDP, Bürgerspital in Würzburg is a Franken estate with more than 700 years of vinicultural tradition under its belt. Robert Haller is at the helm, leading a winery that cultivates Silvaner and Riesling in shell limestone terroir. Always striving for an expression of place, Haller says minerality, complexity, and finesse are more valuable to Bürgerspital than fruitiness, sweetness or opulence. The wines follow their own path, and the result is fine accompaniments to food – one of the cornerstones that guides work in the vineyard and the winery. Bürgerspital has been a VDP member since 1955 and produces 850,000 bottles of wine annually.
This GG Silvaner displays a fine, complex structure, excellent maturity, fine fruit, and classic “Stein Wein” character and minerality. Careful hand selection of fruit that’s fermented with natural yeasts and aged on lees in large oak casks results in an elegant white. This wine’s ideal pairing for rich fish dishes, white meat, or poultry.
