The Hammel Pfälzer Freiheit winery brings a first-class red wine to the glass. It has a wonderfully bright, ruby red color. This Hammel red wine reveals all kinds of blackberries on the nose. As if that wasn't already impressive, redcurrant and black cherry are added thanks to the ageing in stainless steel.
The Pfälzer Freiheit can justifiably be described as exceptionally fruity and velvety, as it has been vinified with a wonderfully sweet taste profile. On the palate, this balanced red wine is characterized by an incredibly velvety and light texture. Thanks to the balanced fruit acidity, the Pfälzer Freiheit flatters with a pleasing mouthfeel without lacking freshness. The finish of this red wine from the Palatinate wine-growing region, which is capable of maturing well, ultimately delights with a good aftertaste. The finish is also accompanied by mineral facets from the loess and clay-dominated soils. In the Palatinate, the vines that produce the grapes for this wine grow on clay and loess soils. After the grape harvest, the grapes are immediately taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. This is followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by maturation on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally drawn off.
