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 2013 Ihringer Winklerberg Spätburgunder Erste Lage

This is the newest addition to the Spätburgunder lineup and we are thrilled to introduce this wine to the US. It seamlessly bridges the Tuniberg and the Winklerberg GG in its flavor, complexity and structure. This pinot was fermented in stainless steel after which it was racked by way of gravity into neutral barriques, 50% of which were new. Ripe raspberry and bing cherry dictate the mid-palate and the tannins are subtly integrated.
