Bernhard Huber’s professional career and connection with his land are closely linked to the production of Pinot Noir, known locally as Spätburgunder. The Baden region has a long tradition of cultivating this noble red grape variety. As early as the 13th century, the Cistercian monks who dedicated themselves to research and microzoning noticed the strong pedoclimatic analogy between Burgundy and this German region, located between Alsace, the Rhine and the Black Forest. Bernhard, from the earliest times, understood the importance of these historical roots and started a project to restructure local viticulture, which was still too anchored to the cooperative realities of the decades preceding the war. Today, Bernhard’s wife, Barbara, and son Julian, produce 5 different varieties of wine, among which the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir stand out, which have been defined “the best in Germany and among the best ever” by Jancis Robinson .
Aged between 5 and 55 years, the plants have an average yield of about 60 hectoliters per hectare and grow on calcareous clay soils rich in shell fragments. Vinification and malolactic fermentation take place spontaneously in used barriques, for a total of 18 months. Bottling takes place without filtration.
The Malterdinger Bernard Huber is a tribute to fine international white wines. A glass able to stimulate any palate tired and bored by monotonous wines. It is the embodiment of freshness, character and vitality, bringing out the salty notes like never before. The delicate bouquet captures the attention with the precision of a refined wine shop, while an expert hand takes care of creating an enveloping and elegant white.
It goes beautifully with fresh fish dishes, shellfish and creamy cheeses. Also perfect with light appetizers and chicken-based dishes or grilled vegetables. An ideal choice for a refined and harmonious culinary experience.
