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.

Here is a volcanic silvaner harvested at Spätlese potential alcohol and fermented dry. It highlights the variety's smoky side and will make you rethink the nature of silvaner altogether. It is long and complex with surprising poise and depth—a wine that wakes up the senses. Crucially, it’s a crowd pleaser from an Erste Lage site at an affordable price!
