The Hinterberg Vineyard is in the Katzenthal Valley with very steep hills facing South. It is situated in the same geologic formation as the Grand Cru Schlossberg vineyard. The wine is what the French call “blouge” – an abbreviation of the words BLanc (white) and rOUGE (red), referring to the fact that it’s a co-ferment of red and white grapes.

Varieties: fieldblend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Auxerrois, Pinot Beurot

Yield: 35 hl/ha

Vinification notes: This wine is a co-ferment of red and white grapes left on the skins for a short time, then pressed and matured for about a year in big foudres. No addition at any point, no fining, no filter.

Personality: juicy and surprising! The red grapes contribute a rosé element, the white grapes a macerated one, and together it gives a wine that’s light-bodied and offering something different with each sip.
