The elegant Pfaelzer Freiheit from Weingut Hammel glides into the glass with a bright purple color. This German cuvée shows wonderfully expressive notes of blackberries, sour cherries and plums in the glass. There are also hints of pepper.
The Hammel Pfaelzer Freiheit wine estate delights with its elegantly dry taste. It was bottled with 6.1 grams of residual sugar. This is a real quality wine that clearly stands out from simpler qualities and so this German wine naturally delights with the finest balance despite its dryness. Aroma does not necessarily need residual sugar. This melting and fleshy red wine is balanced and multi-layered on the palate. Thanks to the balanced fruit acidity, the Pfaelzer Freiheit flatters the palate with a velvety mouthfeel without lacking in juicy liveliness. 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 notes from the clay and loess-dominated soils.
Vinification of Weingut Hammel Pfaelzer Freiheit
The starting point for the first-class and wonderfully balanced Pfaelzer Freiheit cuvée from Weingut Hammel is Dornfelder, Saint Laurent and Pinot Noir grapes. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in the Palatinate. Here, the vines dig their roots deep into loam and loess soils. After being harvested by hand, the grapes are transported to the press house as quickly as possible. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. At the end of fermentation, the Pfaelzer Freiheit is allowed to harmonize further on the fine lees for a few months.
