Wolfram is farming a small parcel, as described above, in Maring, a tiny village in a side valley away from the Mosel, tucked behind and between the wall of vines that is the Brauneberger Juffer and the Niederberg Helden. The "MHF20" refers to the village (Maring), the vineyard (Honigberg) and the off-dry quality (Feinherb). Interestingly, this side valley was once the Mosel's main path, presumably the oxbow lake that once was there has since dried up. The vineyard is farmed organically. The vines are about 30 years old and are planted on a weathered blue slate soil. Wolfram carries out a rather severe pre-selection; no grapes with any botrytis are used, period. He uses a very long and very gentle pressing cycle (a Champagne cycle), so that the tail of the juice is not used, preserving freshness and acidity. Around 25% of the best whole bunches - they really must be perfect - are put into small nets, like a tea pouch that can steep in the juice. Once these whole bunches are in their nets, the tank is filled with the pressed juice. The wine ferments like this; as the alcohol increases in the must, the extraction of phenolics from the stems and skins can become quite intense. After the fermentation, the whole bunches that were in the pouches are pressed and this juice is added to the blend. The wine then goes into used barrels. In 2020 the wine simply did not ferment to complete dryness - it has about 15 grams of residual sugar. Thus, the wine was lightly filtered and sulfured. It was bottled in the fall of 2021.
The MHT_R19, as described above, is one small barrel of the 2019 wine, aged for an additional year in the cellar.
