Dr. Heger Achkarrer Schlossberg Grauburgunder 2020 75 CL

Baden – Germany

There was once a country doctor in Ihringen, Dr. Max Heger, who was an enthusiastic amateur winemaker. This passion gave rise to the well-known winery, which is now run by Joachim and Silvia in the third generation. Pinot Gris Achkarrer Schlossberg 2019 from Dr. Heger matured in barriques. Its intense bouquet exudes aromas of yellow plums, ripe apples, pears, subtle roasted nuts and vanilla. It has the typical melting quality of Pinot Gris and a fine acidity enlivens its juicy body. The wood is wonderfully integrated and gives this wine from Kaiserstuhl a beautiful structure. Its finish is long and dense; candied citrus fruits resonate. Perfect for roast veal or game fish.

Weingut Dr. Heger was founded in 1935 by Dr. Max Heger. He was a country doctor, and since most of his patients were winemakers, it wasn’t long before he was also “infected”. Soon all his spare time was devoted to amateur winemaking, and in 1935 he took the plunge. He bought fields in Archkarrer Schlossberg and Ihringer Winklerberg, which were to become the basis for one of Germany’s most renowned producers.

Although Max Heger had passed the age of 50, he had to find a stethoscope and smock again when he was drafted as a medic during World War II. A few years after the war, he left the day-to-day management of the winery to his son Wolfgang “Mimus” Heger. In 1981, Wolfgang’s son, Joachim, entered the picture and in 1986 he also founded a “daughter winery” called Weinhaus Heger, which was to help satisfy the high demand for the now world-famous Heger wines. Here you allow yourself to use a share of purchased grapes from selected partners, but the team in the cellar is the same as behind Dr. The Heger wines.
