2018 Ziereisen Heugumber Gutedel Baden
It's hard to believe that Heugumber Gutedel is actually Ziereisen's entry-level wine. Many winemaker colleagues would take the opportunity to market this fabulous Gutedel as a hot and trendy natural wine, for Hanspeter Ziereisen it's only natural to sell it as it is. This basic wine is also an expression of the winery's philosophy and its production is being taken very seriously. "Heugumber" is the Alemannic name for grasshoppers, which might refer to the lightness of the wine.
Ziereisen's Gutedel is never a fruit bomb, so Heugumber is rather slim, herbal and refreshing. Apple peel, salt lemon, kitchen herbs and hay. Light, but with a lot of expression beyond its fruitiness. Fermented spontaneously in wooden barrels and matured on the lees for 18 months, which is lot of effort for a basic wine. An almost perfect, uncomplicated food companion and a nice everyday wine.
Hanspeter Ziereisen, his wife Edeltraud and their family make incredibly characteristic and distinctive wines. Their love for Burgundian Pinot Noirs and their ambition to make the best possible wine from the old grape variety Gutedel, a grape which is typical of Baden and the Markgräferland region, already gives an idea of the taste of her wines. But they are even more complex, and in addition to great Pinot Noirs they also make one of the best German Syrah. Even their Pinot Gris tastes exciting! Ziereisen also demonstrate their independence by marketing all their wines as country wines from Baden. This brought them a lot of recognition from both critics and wine fans. The Ziereisen winery is now one of the most appreciated and highly decorated in Germany.
