The dynamic husband-wife team of H. O. Spanier and CarolinSpanier-Gillot is the driving force behind the Battenfeld Spanier Estate. Their “secret sauce” is hidden deep beneath the soil of this outstanding winery located in Rheinhessen, namely layers of lime that add precise, vibrant minerality across the spectrum of their varietals: Riesling, Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir), and Silvaner. Cellarmaster H. O. has combined the perfectionism developed during an early career in sport with the trust in nature that goes hand-in-hand with the finest wine-making. When applied to organic and bio-dynamic vineyard and winery principles this combination of skill and intuition yields wines crafted almost single-handedly by a rich and unique terroir. The result is the estate’s incomparable Silver-label Riesling and vibrant Spätburgunder - late (spät) ripening pinot (burgunder) and Silvaner.

The Erste Lage classification denotes world-class vineyards of especially notable characteristics: Hohen-Sülzen lies along the Eisbachtal. This river flows from the Donnersberg massif and exerts a significant climatic influence on the valley. The fluctuations between daytime and night-time temperature are more pronounced in Hohen-Sülzen than in other districts. This gives the wine its freshness, elegance, and tension. The vines grow on pure limestone with a generous deposit of loess and are characterized by their ripe fruit, fine spice, and nuanced acidity. The grapes for this wine were selectively hand-harvested, wild fermented, and matured for 18 months in French barriques. With shades of deep ruby, Hohen-Sülzen Spätburgunder reveals aromas of dark berries such as blackberry and elderberry. The sublime touch of barrel spice complements the fruit, with mild accents of allspice and nutmeg. It’s chiseled and elegant on the palate, with generous dark fruit and youthful, polished tannins. A delicate salty minerality and striking verve carry the fruit across the spicy-cool finish line. A delightful pairing with Boeuf Bourgignon, roasted pigeon, or Sicilian parmigiana.
