Vinification of the Walporzheim Kräuterberg Spätburgunder GG by Meyer-Näkel
The basis for the balanced Walporzheim Kräuterberg Spätburgunder GG from the Ahr are grapes from the grape variety Spätburgunder. In the Ahr, the vines that produce the grapes for this wine grow on soils of clay and sandstone. Moreover, the grapes of this red wine of Meyer-Näkel do not grow in the flat land, but dig their roots into the subsoil in steep slopes. The steep slope cultivation ensures that even in cooler wine-growing regions with less long growing seasons, the vines receive a maximum of sun. Walporzheim Kräuterberg Spätburgunder GG is an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, as this German wine breathes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. The ripening of the grapes for this wine made from Pinot Noir is influenced to a considerable extent by the climate of the growing region. In the Ahr, the grapes thrive in a rather cool climate, which is reflected, among other things, in particularly long and uniform grapes and a rather moderate must weight. The grapes for this red wine from Germany are harvested, at the time of optimal ripeness, exclusively by hand. After the harvest, the grapes quickly reach the winery. Here they are selected and carefully ground. Then fermentation takes place in small wood at controlled temperatures. After fermentation is complete, the Walporzheim Kräuterberg Spätburgunder GG is aged for another 16 months in oak barrels. The aging in oak barrels is followed by considerable bottle aging, which makes this red wine even more complex.
