Salwey

Konrad Salwey is the third generation of his family to run this estate based at Oberrotweil in the Kaiserstuhl region of Baden although the estate has been in existence since the 18th century.

The vineyards are in Oberrotweil, on the slopes of the Kaiserstuhl and in the Glottertal, a valley in the Black Forest about 30km away. The reputatation of the estate was established by his father, Wolfdietrich, who improved quality over four decades and helped establish Baden as the home of quality Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir). He was also instrumental in establishing VDP Baden, the organisation of top estates. Konrad has three grand cru vineyards around Oberrotweil and 41 hectares in total on the loess and weathered volcanic soils which bring a lovely mineral character to all the wines alongside the ripeness achieved in this very sunny and dry region, in close to Mediterranean conditions. Harvesting is selective and by hand, and natural fermentations, always to dryness, take place in large oak barrels from locally sourced oak. He employs a policy of minimal intervention which means that the wines are neither fined nor filtered. These are full and characterful wines to which Konrad is adding ever greater degrees of finesse.

Vintage guide

The warmest year on record, 2022 has produced some super results. The wines of 2021 are lighter in style and more aromatic with evident acidity compared with the previous two vintages. 2020 saw a warm summer, giving ripeness, while a prolonged harvest has given freshness and perfect quality fruit. The 2019s show wonderful rapier-like style, good weight and depth, yields are lower than the generous 2018 vintage. “A glorious vintage” said one grower, amongst many superlatives bandied about for 2018. For the first time in 10 years growers were truly happy with the quantity and the quality. The resulting wines are pure, rich, aromatic, and show a fine acidity. An early harvest following frost earlier in the season meant 2017 produced excellent light, fruity wines with great finesse. Weather conditions were tricky in 2016 and growers had to earn their stripes; the early season was wet, which reduced yields, followed by a hot summer with cool nights bringing excellent aromatics but with wines a little lighter than 2015. The brilliant 2015 vintage took place in ideal conditions and produced wonderfully ripe wines in all styles. Kabinetts are a bit short in quantity, but the dry wines especially are very approachable. 2014 saw a good crop of light, well-balanced wines with well integrated acidity.
