Julian Haart Mosel Riesling 2018

The 2018er Moselle Riesling comes essentially from the Piesporter Goldtröpfchen, with in addition grapes from the Wintricher Ohligsberg and Piesporter Günterslay, and was harvested at 88° Oechsle. It was fermented down to bone-dry levels of residual sugar (1 g/l). It delivers a gorgeously refreshing nose made of white flowers, grapefruit zest, lime, spices and smoke, all wrapped into some residual scents from its spontaneous fermentation. The wine proves delicately zesty and pure on the palate and leaves some attractively tart and herbal flavors in the long, linear and almost lean finish. The after-taste is all about smoke and lime, and lasts for minutes. While enjoyable now, this wine significantly gains in presence as it develops in the glass and is thus best left alone for one or two years to make of it. 2021-2028. 90 points (2018 Vintage) – Mosel Fine Wine 6/28/2019

The 2018 Mosel Riesling had also just been bottled, but it too was showing no ill effects from the recent mise. The wine comes at twelve percent octane this year and sports all of one gram of residual sugar, but is impeccably balanced and far from tart or severe in style. The bouquet is beautiful and very elegant, wafting from the glass in a mix of pear, quince, a touch of wild yeasts, a lovely base of slate and a top note of white flowers. On the palate the wine is refined, focused and fullish, with a beautifully tensile profile, lovely mid-palate depth and outstanding focus and grip on the poised and racy finish. This will want at least a few years in the cellar to blossom. 2022-2060. 92+ points – John Gilman, View from the Cellar
