16. September 2014
The Franconian winery Bürgerspital was founded by archbishop Julius Echter von Mespelbrunn. The winery has been at the international top level for a long time and was able to build a famous brand among the wine community. Well known are the excellent and opulent Rieslings from the location Würzburger Stein and Silvaner from the gru Würzburger Stein-Harfe.
Due to its historical development, the foundation has some of the best vineyards in Franconia and of course a state-of-the-art wine cellar.
Most bottles are bottled in the traditional Bocksbeutel. This was introduced at the beginning of the early 18th century by Würzburg City Council. At that time, only the best wines of the citizen’s hospital should be bottled. However, this bottle shape is less well received by the younger generation of wine. As it were, it is synonymous with the cuckoo clock – very old school. But if you let yourself go on the adventure, you will be surprised by strong and always nice juicy and dry white wines.
Watch this review video for Grosses Gewächs Würzburger Stein-Harfe Silvaner 2012 from Bürgerspital from the Franken wine region.
Wine region: Franken
Classification: VdP Grosses Gewächs
The Grosses Gewächs Würzburger Stein-Harfe Silvaner 2012 from Weingut Bürgerspital is golden-pale colored and reveals a marvellous freshness and stunning exotic flavors. Squeezed lime over papaya. Ripe yellow fruit and herbage. Smoky and remarkable complex. Opulent and elegant at the same time with a mouth-watering juiciness and an enormous taste on the palate. The acidity is moderate and harmonious and supports the structure very well. Mineralic and lingering finish. Best now through 2035.
