The Haart family prides of being one of the oldest local winemaking families in this part of the Mosel. Weingut Reinhold Haart is without doubt a privileged place by the Mosel’s riverbank, in the village of Piesport, in the very heart of the Mosel, that it has been producing wines since 1337 from grapes grown exclusively in their own estate in one of the region’s best vineyards. Today their 8 ha. of vineyards from a diversity of sites produce a wide range of elegant and fine Riesling wines from the ripe fruit and its excellent terroir. Vineyards climbing uphill in steep sites overlooking the river, exposed to the sunlight and growing on slate rich soils. Yields are kept low and the fermentation takes place in cool with natural yeasts either in stainless steel or in the traditional oak barrels. Their wines are natural fruit sweetness with a great ageing potential.
The winery is a member of the Bernkasteler Ring, an association of the top wine estates of the Mosel, Saar and Ruwer river valleys and the oldest wine Auction Company in this growing area.
Piesport is a small town on a sharp bend in the Mosel river in the Mosel wine district of Germany. The town of Piesport contains the ideal sites for wine growing, a steep amphitheater facing south. The name of the slopes flanking the Village: the single vineyard site, Goldtröpfchen (little drop of gold), is a splendid south- facing site protected from winds by its location on a loop in the river, the soil is quite complex, compose of quartz with stony clay and slate, rich in iron oxide, it is famous for gently honeyed wines, with great fragrance and very mineral in character, here half the wines are classified as great growth and the other half as first growth. The vast plantation across the river is known as Piesporter Treppchen.
Kabinett: Typically, semi-sweet wines with good acidity, wines made from fully ripened grapes from the main harvest in September and made in a light style.
The Haart Piesporter Grafenberg Riesling Kabinett is a single estate wine pressed from healthy ripe grapes hand-picked from vines growing in the Grafenberg vineyards, where the family owns 1 ha of vines up to 15 years old planted on deep soil with soft clay, stones and red slate. The must has fermented with indigenous yeasts.
Tasting Notes: Acidity, sweetness and richness, fruity, with delicate, ripe peachy and tropical fruit flavors, lime and perfect balance, oily and minerally on the palate, full character and long aftertaste.
Notes: While delicious right now with its great length of flavors is ageing beautifully.
