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 2016 Silvaner*** Alte Reben "Pferd Willi"

This silvaner is named after the horse that Joachim uses to work and plow this vineyard. It is one of his oldest parcels of silvaner and the wine is made in a non-interventionist way: organic viticulture, no machines, ambient yeast fermentation in neutral barrels, full malolactic and only a small amount of SO2 prior to bottling for stabilization.
