Heinrich Spindler

Pfalz | Forst

In 1620, Sontag Spindler left Burgundy for the Pfalz to purchase vineyards, including parcels in some of the world’s most exalted vineyards — namely Kirchenstück. His descendant, Heinrich Spindler, went on to found the Spnidler estate. Markus Spindler, great-grandson of Heinrich Spindler, now leads the 20 ha, organically farmed estate. Riesling is the star here, on limestone, colored sandstone, and basalt soils and in a range of Pfalz microclimates. From his everyday bottlings to the Grosse Lagen, the wines are tactile, focused, detailed, and decidedly dry. They are about nuance and purity over power, grace and precision over opulence.

Heinrich Spindler 2017 Riesling trocken

This is Markus’ bread and butter riesling. The grapes for this wine are sourced from Spindler’s vineyard holdings in Friedelsheim, Niederkirchen and Forst. It was fermented in stainless steel until dry with cultured yeasts. This is a pure expression of Pfalz exotics: passion fruit, peach, almond blossom.
