Sheer drinking pleasure.

Sheer drinking pleasure.

As the culmination of a Mosel Riesling tasting featuring the likes of Joh. Jos. Prüm, Dr. Loosen and Wolfer Goldgruber, the 2007 vintage of Reinhold Haart Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Riesling Auslese featuring 50% botrytised fruit.

What was extraordinary about this wine for me was how utterly seamless it appeared – excellent fruit concentration offset by riveting acidity, the botrytis no doubt adding texture but in no way could the result be considered unctuous. It could be argued that the wine was a bit short on real flavour complexity but even greater charms will surely come with time.

Score: 92/100.
