Description

Lemberger is the German name for the Blaufrankisch found next door in Austria. The nose on this interesting red opens with dried herbs thyme and light rosemary. there is also a nice peppery spice. There is of course lovely fruit blackcurrant and light cherry. The palate echo's this with a nice earthy mushroom note.

The grapes for our Lemberger are carefully and selectively harvested by hand. We obtain fine fruit aromas through gentle, cold processing of the grapes with whole berries. The subsequent long maceration extracts the deep red pigments and ripe tannins from the berry skin. Our Lemberger is stored in old, small wooden barrels for eight months during the malolactic fermentation and maturing. Give this Lemberger time and use a large glass so that it can develop its full aroma

Württemberg is a thirsty state: until recently few of its wines were exported, and with no real competition, there was little impetus to make world-class wines. Now it’s all change: thanks to growers like Jochen Beurer, it has emerged onto the domestic and now international stage with serious, well crafted and unique wines.

The Remstal was traditionally an area dominated by cooperatives, and it was only in 1997 Jochen Beurer that decided to found his own estate. Not content with that, he also took the decision early on to go biodynamic, and is a key player in reviving forgotten local grape varieties. He eschews cultured yeast, and makes authentic mineral-driven wines from sandstone and gypsum keuper soils.
