Terra preta for the vineyard

Andreas Huppert and the black earth of the Indies

Making the Terra preta

The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge. You, who so well know the nature of my soul, will not suppose, however, that I gave utterance to a threat. At length I would be avenged; this was a point definitively settled — but the very definitiveness with which it was resolved precluded the idea of risk.

I must not only punish but punish with impunity. A wrong is unredressed when retribution overtakes its redresser. It is equally unredressed when the avenger fails to make himself felt as such to him who has done the wrong. It must be understood that neither by word nor deed had I given Fortunato cause to doubt my good will. I continued, as was my wont, to smile in his face, and he did not perceive that my smile now was at the thought of his immolation.

The wines at a glance

The rating of the wine reflects the mean value from a tasting by our jury.
The wine was evaluated in a blind tasting.
The wine was tasted as a barrel sample or before an official test number (Amtliche Prüfungsnummer or Staatliche Prüfnummer) was issued.
The wine exhibited a sensory abnormality during our tasting. This does not necessarily have to be a qualitative defect or a wine fault. In the case of a qualitative impairment, a devaluation or rejection was made depending on the type and severity of the defect or wine fault.

2021 Terra Petra Chardonnay Landwein trocken


Landwein Rhein • Geschützte geografische Angabe (g. g. A.)

Lot 2021-1619 • 13.5 % alcohol


Tasted on 10 April 2023 by Werner Elflein

Intense straw to golden yellow with gray tones. Shows quite clear despite unfiltered filling. Pronounced “tears”. Quite expansive, yellow-fruited aroma of yellow apple and pear. In addition, aromas of chamomile blossom and wild mushroom. In the background glowing wood. In the mouth the conclusive continuation of the olfactory perception. More horizontally than vertically laid out, with powerful but not too lush stature. Warming phenols, on the tongue some strawberry in an otherwise yellow-fruited context. Well balanced by an elegant and fresh acidity of the 2021 vintage. Excellent length. Successful and individual interpretation of the grape variety.

2021 Terra Petra Spätburgunder Rosé Landwein trocken


Landwein Rhein • Geschützte geografische Angabe (g. g. A.)

Lot 2021-1719 • 12 % alcohol


Tasted on 1 April 2023 by Werner Elflein

Pale salmon pink. Complex bouquet containing aromas of pink grapefruit as well as tropical fruits, especially passion fruit and pineapple. In the background, even sweet cherry is perceptible. On the tongue, a little honey spiciness with a pleasantly consistent dry taste. Focused and expressive. Reminiscent of an orange wine due to the fine tannins. Piquant hints of acidity. Clear cranberry note in the finish, then more sweet cherry again in the finish. Very good length.

Amtliche Prüfungsnummer 4290103 19 22 • 13.5 % alcohol


Tasted on 6 April 2023 by Werner Elflein

Dark, largely opaque cherry red. Vegetable-spicy scent of cherry and dried plum with a discreet yellow-fruity component reminiscent of peach and apricot. In addition, nuances of white blossoms and some smoked bacon. On the palate, the olfactory experience finds its conclusive continuation. The warming fruit is surrounded by chocolaty tannins that are already mellow and melt well on the tongue. Harmoniously integrated acidity. Excellent length. Shows floral notes again in the finish.
