Württemberg | Stetten

“There’s a change coming. Württemberg is getting more and more interesting. We’re right in the middle of it,” says Moritz Haidle. It only takes a few minutes in his company to feel his sparking energy and ideas. But to stand in his vineyards, walk the old-cask-lined cellar built into the very hill those vineyards climb, and above all taste through his extraordinary, ever more focused, dynamic, and expressive wines is all the convincing you’ll need.

Karl Haidle 2017 Lemberger Bunter Mergel

Bunter Mergel translates to “colored marl”, referring to the distinctive terroir from which the grapes for this wine are sourced. The grapes come from organically farmed younger vines in all of Moritz’s Lemberger parcels. The wine is fermented with native yeasts for approximately 3-4 weeks on its skins before being racked to finish in neutral barrique, where the wine spends an additional 6 months of elevage.
