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 2013 Pinot Noir "Tuniberg"

Tuniberg (1000 ha) is a small hill that lies between the Black Forest and the Kaiserstuhl. The Tuniberg is comprised of terraces and boasts a unique microclimate that sets it apart from the Kaiserstuhl, as a whole; in general, the wines contain higher acidities than the rest of the region. It is fresh and bright with black cherry flavors and clear limestone character.
