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 2022 Sauvignon Blanc

Through harvesting at various stages of select maturity, macerating the fruit for various lengths of time based on ripeness (4-24 hours), and a very reductive handling, Markus obtains an intensely aromatic flavor profile of Sauvignon Blanc that is more Pfalz than it is your straight forward Sauv B: very fresh with unconventional passionfruit aromas and spicy, minty freshness on the nose.
