We’re happy to have another interview to share with Daniel Immich of Weingut Immich Anker, in the village of Enkirch on the Mosel in Germany. We talk about his current release of Sekt, an interesting bottle of his Eisbruch dry wines, and get introduced to little Maya. The Sekt and the Brut Nature Sekt are both from the 2013 vintage, and the Eisbruch is from 2016.

Episode 331: A Mix Of Wine

February 25, 2017

After some time away, Dan picked a mix of wines for this show. The Tripod Project in Portland always makes fun wines with input from three great local wine makers. This week, we taste their Triple Fist Gamay Noir. Daniel Immich has been a favorite German producer since we met way back in Episode 175. Garagiste brought in some of the Immich Anker 2015 Eisbruch Riesling Trocken, and we wanted to taste it to encourage you to keep an eye out for future offers. Finally, we found the 2015 Kees Kieren Erdener Treppchen Spatlese ** Auction Wine in Portland, and were very excited to try another rare find.

When he visited Portland Daniel Immich of Weingut Immich Anker invited us to visit him in Germany. We took him up on it, and had lots of fun hanging out. He offered to do another episode with us on site in his vineyards, and we were happy to seize that opportunity. While visiting the Eisbruch vineyard, we taste the 2013 Riesling Trocken Alte Reben, the 2013 Eisbruch Riesling Trocken, and the 2013 Liebling vom Chef. In the Enkircher Steffensberg, we taste the 2013 Riesling Spätlese from that vineyard.

Have you ever taken a ride on a monorail?

German wine maker Daniel Immich came to Portland for a promotional tour of the West Coast, and we were lucky enough to get him back on the show. Barnaby Tuttle from the Teutonic Wine Company joined us as well. The two of them took on an ambitious project to make a blend of Mosel and Oregon Riesling, and we taste the blend, and the two base wines together on the show. “The Bridge” is a blend of 2012 Riesling from Germany and Oregon. The two base wines are the 2012 Immich Anker Eisbruch Riesling Trocken, and the 2012 Teutonic Wine Company Crow Valley Riesling.

Daniel Immich makes wine at Immich-Anker in Enkirch, in the Mosel Valley of Germany. Here’s a link to see where that is.

He was visiting Portland, and kindly agreed to do a show with us! His family has been making wine in Enkirch since the 1400’s, and he shares some information about a historic vineyard and a unique wine he’s making with our local friends and importers, the Teutonic Wine Company. They import his wine to the USA, so contact them if you’d like to pick some up.  On the show, we taste the 2009 Riesling Sekt Brut, the 2011 Eisbruch Riesling Trocken, and the unlreleased “Bridge Wine”.
