This cuvée is made of Regent, a fungal-resistant variety and Dornfelder, a regional classic. Both can make a dark red, but we decided to go for a bright version: 6 days of cold maceration lead to a light colour and mood. This is a cheerful red - A wine that brings ease. Low alcohol, high fruit. The grapes were harvested just about ripe, destemmed and the juice macerated with the skins for six days at 8°C. At this temperature, there is no fermentation happening, so not a high extraction of tannins, but mostly of the aromatic fruit flavours. People who take themselves very seriously don’t like this wine description, but we do: This wine is lecker (German for delicious), not too serious and we like it.
GLOW GLOW is a family project. We are the fifth and sixth generation of Baumberger's working together in Mandel to capture the energy and elegance of the Nahe region in our wines. Our winery, Weingut Baumberger was founded in 1855 as a small mixed agricultural farm. Today, we focus on wine and work with 14.5 hectares of land under the principles of organic farming. Our idea of winemaking is simple: Nothing is added, nothing is taken away. We want to capture pure vividness in the wines.
