Dr. Heger

Baden | Ihringen

Just a few miles from the French border, in Germany’s southernmost region of Baden, Joachim Heger farms the extraordinary grand crus of Ihringer Winklerberg and Achkarrer Schlossberg. On these steep, volcanic slopes, Joachim gives voice to unique, delicious, ageworthy expressions of pinot noir. For close to 40 vintages, his work has revolutionized the way we can interpret the potential of this ancient wine region. Joachim made a name for himself and Baden with pinot noir, but he also embraces classic Germanic varieties, foremost riesling and silvaner, by allowing each to work its magic on the unique volcanic, loess, and limestone soils.

Dr. Heger 2020 Achkarren Schlossberg Riesling Grosses Gewächs

West of the Ihringer Winklerberg in the village Achkarren are the steep vineyards of the Schlossberg. It is one of the warmest locations in Germany and is characterized by terraces of varying sizes and gradients. The low rainfall and barren soils create complex aromatic structures in the wines. This riesling was fermented in stainless and remained on the fine lees in stainless for an additional year. It is mature, elegant, at once rich and refined, wonderfully juicy yet balanced.
