Importer's Notes: "This wine offers tremendous value. This is a liter-bottle of fresh, juicy, energetic pinot noir with great balance that is dangerously drinkable and ridiculously affordable. Joachim Heger is considered one of the finest producers of red wine in Germany. When Joachim took over the winemaking in 1981, he began his life’s work, dedicated to redefining the potential of spätburgunder in Baden. Working tireless hours on the ancient, sun-baked volcanic terraces of the Kaiserstuhl, he has labored to maximize the vitality of his vineyards by employing sustainable techniques and replanting with selection-masalle. Walking the vines with Joachim, you can feel his passion for the land as he breaks down his terroir for you not just parcel by parcel but vine by vine. He is a gregarious, quick witted and intensely spirited tour guide, tearing through the vines in his van with no remorse. The results of his work are supremely fresh, energetic wines with unmistakable depth and character. Unlike the dominant fashion for oaky, extracted spätburgunder, Joachim is focused on capturing clarity of site expression and freshness. This is achieved by hand harvesting at the peak of physiological ripeness. In the cellar the fruit is de-stemmed and given a cold soak (inspired by the work of Henri Jayer)."
