Wine information

With the Petersbühl Uwe Lange and Marco Pfliehinger are offering a Lemberger from Württemberg for the first time. The Lemberger comes from an old steep slope between Weinsberg and Erlenbach. Exposed to the south, the vines are located at the top of the cool edge of the forest on the typical Keuper there, which is very rich in limestone and interspersed with red clay. The soil clearly resembles the soil from the Steinsatz Pinot Noir. Depending on the vintage Petersbühl Lemberger Partially destemmed or fermented as whole clusters, then briefly foot-crushed in small wooden vats and fermented on the skins for around three weeks in moderate pigeage. It is then pressed on an old basket press. The wine is drawn off with hose and by fall pressure, aged exclusively in used wooden barrels, predominantly Tonneaux. No yeasts, no enzymes, no fining, no filtration and, depending on the vintage, a maximum of 30 mg of added sulphur, usually less.


Garnet to purple


The Petersbühl 2018 is a still restrained appearing Lemberger or Blaufränkisch, whose power and depth one notices directly and which is also confirmed with the decanting of the wine. The combination of ripe fruit and cool elements is wonderful. Thus, one has the impression of encountering blueberries and blackberries, ripe elderberries and sloes, as well as ripe cherry juice with a hint of sweetness. However, this is countered by the impression of finely crushed lime and complemented by well-dosed wood, so that a coherent picture emerges already in the aroma.


On the palate, this Lemberger from a vintage that is actually very warm, if not hot, offers an unexpected amount of tension and freshness. This is also noticeable in the wine's ripe, juicy fruit. But in the interplay of acidity, tannin, a few raps and the minerality of the Keuper limestone and clay, this maturity is embedded in a wonderfully dense, lively, always transparent and charming overall experience.
