Weingut Julian Haart en primeur

Back to producer list Grower profile Julian Haart's 2017s are quite stunning, but there are only tiny quantities due to the adverse weather conditions. Yields in the Schubertslay, for example, were just 5 hl/ha. The small quantities allowed him to experiment with extended maceration, long slow pressing of up to seven days on a basket press, and reduced sulphur levels. It is quite the best vintage he has ever made. The low yields ensure much greater concentration than the powerful 2015s, and the acidity is higher. Of particular note are the Auslesen. It was his daughter Elisabeth's birth year, and her mother Nadine spent whole nights selecting only the best berries so that she will have something special to drink in twenty years' time. They are wonderful!

2017 MOSEL RIESLING [11 18] (HARJ10217A)
Wow, what a start! Yields a third of normal give a wine that is full of elegant cool ripe pear fruit, vibrant acidity, a hint of tannin and minerals, and a fine silky texture.

2017 PIESPORTER RIESLING [19 18] (HARJ20217A)
Partial whole-bunch fermentation here: the best bunches were put aside and added to the pressed juice in cask. The result is a dense and textured wine, showing ripe yellow fruit with exotic floral notes, a creamy rich minerality and a long nuanced finish.

2017 WINTRICHER RIESLING [20 18] (HARJ22217A)
Grapes from Wintrich tend to be greener and thicker skinned, and it shows here: the fruit is cooler and very fresh, the wine leaner and more elegant and the minerality darker and more pronounced. The finish is long and exciting.

2017 PIESPORTER GOLDTRÖPCHEN Spätlese [17 18] (HARJ56217A)
There is a knot of dense juicy yellow fruit here that will untie itself with bottle age, but in the meantime there is plenty of floral and citrus fruit to enjoy, allied to a cool freshening minerality that drives through to a very long sweet sour finish.
