In 2011, for the first time, I asked myself the question: "What would my own wine taste like?" The effects on this question were groundbreaking for me and shaped my further years in life.
Somewhere along the way I met my good friend Horst Sauer. He gave me the opportunity in 2011 to create my first cuvée for the restaurant Tim Raue.
From year to year, cuvéting developed into an ever-growing passion for me. Today, the creation of wine and the associated company “André Macionga Cuvée” are integral parts of my life.
In 2017, for the first time, I made wines with four wineries. The cooperative work and the associated creative exchange with winemakers from different regions is very valuable to me; and always an act of inspiration. Thanks to this cooperation, I was able to realize my true calling and in 2017 André Macionga Cuvée GmbH was founded.
The cuvées that we have been able to create so far are unique wines. They are clearly structured and have substance. Be enchanted by taste on the palate and sit down with these strong wines. You will discover many nuances and facets.
another journey through the world of flavours!
The wine is mixed with the best barrels of the estate, this creates jagged and pointed edges with an extremely round result. Hints of finely ground black pepper and dense concentrated cherry are dominant. The tangible tension of the tastes raises this cuvée to an extremely high level. The distinctive earthy and fleshy scents are like a red thread through the complete taste and remain until the end. A wonderful, complex aroma. "Kamanima" is an absolute rarity.
"Markus Schneider is one of the most special and unique winemakers in the whole of Germany. Over the last two decades, Markus has built a vineyard that has successfully and ambitiously produced significant wines”- Andre Macionga. The name Markus Schneider is one of the most famous in Germany. It stands for "New style German wine" like no other. The estate covers 92 hectares, producing 800,000 bottles a year, which are found on some of the best wine lists in the world and are often sold out just months after their premiere. A success story Made in Germany, without a long tradition - but with a lot of heart.www.black-print.net
The wine is young and fresh and yet you can taste the maturity of the fruit. The first sip tastes minerlay and at the same time enormously like concentrated yellow fruit. You immediately think of dark yellow compote. It’s very lightly sweet, reminiscent of caramel and yet the wine has harmonious acidity. The texture on the palate is very round and the wine makes a charming impression.
By means of intense fruit and balanced acidity, this polished form of aromas produces a full wine. Round and balanced. A strong smell of exotic fruits in a dark yellow tone and a fresh citric acid underline the whole bouquet and make the cuvee very full. Apricots and Yuzu complete the taste. Despite numerous intense aromas, the wine is dry on the palate. A cuvée full of complexity and refinement.
“Horst Sauer is an artist and in my opinion the best winemaker in the Franconian region”. This isn’t just André's opinion: In 2018 gault millau awarded the house “wine grower of the year”. The winery is in the Franconian town of Escherndorf and is one of the most awarded in Germany. Namesake Horst and his daughter Sandra serve together over 18 hectares of the best vineyards in Franconia, including the lump and the Fürstenberg. Grape varieties such as Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Riesling, Pinot blanc, Bacchus, Scheurebe and late Burgundy are all found on their fantastic vines. The result is outstanding wines with distinctive, concentrated fruit, along with a long service life.www.weingut-horst-sauer.de
light herbal tones, lemon grass and a hint of aniseed pass through the nose. A mineral taste comes to the forefront that is reminiscent of limestone. The whole thing is underlined by a bright yellow fruity note as well as a fine line of acidity that pulls through the whole taste. It is certain: The Nymphe vom Montfort is a cuvée that shines – whether today or tomorrow.
This cuvee shows itself in many facets, Its frivolous, bold and confident. A fine note of elderberry mixed with a breeze of pepper, white peach and grapefruit are present. The excellent acidity enhances the multi-layered complexity on the palate. This structure is retained until the end. “Unartig“ Tells a unique story. Like an excellent movie that you want to watch several times to see things that might have escaped you the first time.
The winery Neverland is one of the most exciting in Germany. Neverland is a place that inspires and creates unique wine experiences. The main reasons for this is Sebastian, Julia and Marcel Class, who run the winery together. They create unconventional wines that impress. The trio of Class siblings play with traditions and at the same time create space for new perspectives. On the vineyard in northern Rheinhessen, two groups of vines thrive on 15 hectares: On one hand, the more than fifty-year-old bouquet varieties Bacchus, Huxelrebe, Scheurebe, Gewürztraminer and Müller Thurgau; on the other hand, the Burgundy grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir along with Cabernet Sauvignon.www.neverland-wine.de
This cuvée is complex, unity, a circle. On the palate you can taste ripe sour cherry, juicy plum and sweet wild raspberry. The oxygen-supported complexity brings with it odors of date, blackthorn and a hint of rosehip. The note of roasted coffee on the palate is broad and gives the wine depth. The bouquet is able to enchant with a complex melody. Nineteen musicians play, one conductor unites - the symphony is complete.
There are only a few German red wine producers who have continuously convinced over the last few years like klostermühle Odernehim. The Gault Millau calls the Klostermühle vineyards the best in the Nahe region. The winery is in the heart of the wine-growing region of Rhineland-Palatinate. It was built in the early Middle Ages as a farmyard of the monastery Disibodenberg and represents more than 1000 years of winemaking tradition. The vineyard "Montfort" is one of the steepest in the world. The winery manages over 13.5 hectares, on which about 110,000 bottles are produced each year, 30,000 bottles of sparkling wine and 3,000 bottles of spirits. The grape varieties include Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Gewürztraminer.www.weingut-klostermuehle.de
