Left to mature in old oak for some 18 to 19 months before release, with fruit sourced from the oldest plot on the Hochkirch estate (planted 1997). Hochkirch was biodynamic certified in 2003. If you’ve had these under the radar, time again to look for the Hochkirch blips.
This is the best wine that winemaker John Nagorcka can produce each year, some years it is not made. The oldest vines and the best barrels. Hochkirch’s Maximus Pinot Noir always has a velvety, thick and deep mouthfeel but with outstanding retention of acidity and freshness and a distinctive earthy, sappy complexity which is the terroir. Pure, long and complex – this will age well, the wine’s terrific stony lift on the finish gives it nice definition. Excellent.
