PostHeaderIcon Heiner Sauer, German wines and also Utiel Requena

Heiner Sauer, German winemaker, created a winery in 1987 the Pfalz, the German Palatinate in the Rhine valley, an area near the border with France. The German tradition of cultivation of white grapes and one of the best areas for growing Riesling and Gewurtztraminer varieties and varieties incorporating 'Burgunder' make this winery produces wines from its 17 ha. following the German tradition of more than 1000 years old.

Harvesting is done by hand with various types of selection, always seeking the highest quality grapes. The winemaking is achieved with modern techniques to extract the maximum exponent in aromas and flavors, but with the traditional view of time and quiet to give the wine to develop gradually.

In Utiel-Requena, Heiner Sauer bought some land in order to produce red wines with Mediterranean character, because in Germany it was very difficult to get acclimatized varieties, its climate and soil types. Bodegas Palmera In particular, the name of the winery on Spanish soil, has 14 ha, south-facing south-west, in the municipality of Utiel, where we can find a fabulous and old strains of almost 50 years Tempranillo, Bobal, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, planted recently.

Here are vinified red wines with character, taking advantage of soil and climatic differences between day and night, at a height close to 700 mts. and less than 100 km from the Mediterranean. Klaus Lauerbach, the winemaker is responsible for controlling the vineyard and the production of these wines, combining these varieties for wine as special as  L'Angelet D'or, a Red Guard wine with 20 months in French oak barrels and a grape rigorous selection on process and only when exceptional vintages occur.  


L'Angelet, Capricho and Viña Cabriel are the three wines, with special selection, which develops in Spain Bodegas Palmera, remained at 90% of production dedicated for export. For varieties produced in Germany, the white, I have to emphasize his great Rieslling and above all a 'Burgunder' made from Pinot Grey, whose structure in the mouth makes it different from the typical targets of the area.
