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 2017 Pinot Noir Rosé

Joachim Heger produces an extraordinary pinot noir rosé with a truly unique southern voice. This is serious rosé—what is to be expected of a spätburgunder savant. After 90% of this pinot went direct to press, it was fermented in stainless steel where the remaining 10% of whole berries were thrown into the vessel and remained for the duration of fermentation. Full in body, earth-driven, structured and spicy, this wine holds true to its terroir and reflects Baden's sunshine and warmth. With plenty of cut and bright acidity, this is a perfect pairing wine.
