Haart Rielsing Ohligsberger Spätlese comes from the vineyards located on the Ohligsberg area, a very steep, south-west facing slope, rising above the banks of the river Moselle, near the village of Wintrich. The soil here, is composed of hard slate stones with a blue-grey color. A soil that heats up very quickly in the sun and gives the grapes a higher level of maturity.
Hand-picked grapes in late October. The must ferments with natural yeasts in steel tanks in the celler in Piesport. After a long aging on the lees, the wine is bottles before June. Residual sugar: 92,3 g/l
Spätlese: literally means late harvest, wines of higher quality harvested at the end of the autumn, from grapes which have been allowed to ripen longer than usual, increasing the intensity and the flavors of the fruit.
Tasting Notes: Ripe stone fruit scented nose, especially peach, apricot, grapefruit, pear, stony slate minerality. ON the palate is dense and fruity, round, mouth-filling, slatey, honeyed sweetness, finishing with good fresh acidity.
Notes:A promising wine that will gain in complexity and expression with age, best after 10 years and more when it has mature to its full potential.
Excellent with aromatic and spicy dishes
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, where the family Haart 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.

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.
