The legendary Bernkasteler Doctor vineyard has long been considered one of the best sites in Germany. Its Doctor name comes from the 14th Century, when the Archbishop Boemund II had a very serious illness that his doctors were unable to cure him of. According to legend after drinking the wine of this vineyard he made a complete recovery and declared: “This wine is the true doctor!”
From then on, this steeply sloped, directly southwest exposed, pure blue Devonian slate, tiny vineyard of 3.26ha, which sits above the village of Bernkastel, has been called Doctor. The wines from here have been drank by royalty and wine elites for centuries.
Playful and medium-plus-bodied, but soft and light in the mouth. Sappy and delicate on the palate and very long in the finish. Well balanced, nothing dominates here.
Pairings: Pairs wonderfully with spicy sushi, chilled shellfish, foie gras terrine, arugula salad, ceviche, tuna tartare, grilled salmon steaks, roast pork.
