|Availability:||In stock (10)|
Just a few miles from the French border, in Germany’s southernmost region of Baden, Joachim Heger farms a pair of extraordinary volcanic grand crus (Grosses Gewächs): Ihringer Winklerberg and Achkarrer Schlossberg. The vineyards here are on steep, sun-soaked slopes, places of startling intensity. Joachim gives voice to this terroir through classic varieties, foremost the pinot family, riesling, and silvaner. Here is a volcanic silvaner harvested at Spätlese potential alcohol and fermented dry. It highlights the variety's smoky side and will make you rethink the nature of silvaner altogether. It is long and complex with surprising poise and depth—a wine that wakes up the senses. Crucially, it’s a crowd pleaser from an Erste Lage site at an affordable price! Sustainably Grown.
