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 has made around 40 vintages from these vineyards, farming without herbicides or pesticides since 2007, and has established a reputation for himself as a leading light in the world of German spätburgunder (pinot noir). This cuvée comes from Tuniberg, a small hill set between the Kaiserstuhl and the Black Forest. 1000 ha in total, it features terraced vineyards and its own distinct microclimate, which generally results in wines of higher acidity than other parts of the region. This elegant pinot noir is delicate and vivacious with fresh black cherry notes backed by spicy hints of cracked pepper and subtle minerality. Sustainably grown, vegan.
