Producer Note

Weingut Weegmüller has over 300 years of winemaking history. The Weegmüller sisters Stefanie and Gabrielle have excelled in making delicious wines from the Palatinate region for over 30 years. Having started in 1984, owner Stefanie was one of the first female winemakers in Germany’s wine industry. Not only has she mastered all the technical aspects of winemaking, but she brings both heart and soul to her work. Gabrielle carefully manages the commercial aspects of the business. The vineyards are farmed organically and the yields are restricted to gain concentration and weight, resulting in wines that are wonderfully rich and food friendly.

Vineyard

The grapes are produced in the outstanding vineyard sites of the Mittelhaardt. Almost 90% of Weingut Weegmuller's vineyards are located in the top classified region of Haardt. This district takes its name from the low-lying Haardt Mountains, which play a vital role in the terroir here. The grapes for this wine come from a vineyard which is situated on one third Haardt soil and two thirds Neustadt soil. The soils are made up of sand and clay over deep slate, which helps to impart a touch of minerality to the wine. The name of the wine Mandelring, is thought to come from the German word Mandel, meaning almonds, as there may have been almond trees originally planted on the site. The vineyards are cultivated as naturally as possible.

Winemaking

Germany has revolutionised its winemaking over recent years. This wine epitomises the new style of German wines, which have a wonderful balance of fruit, acidity and relatively low alcohol. The wine was fermented in stainless steel at temperatures controlled at approximately 18°C. The wine was made without any oak influence, in order to retain the purity of fruit and the essence of the terroir.
