Two Mosel wines from Haart and Vollenweider


Just a quick post today featuring two lovely wines from the Mosel.  Of the pair you can start drinking the aromatic 2012 Reinhold Haart, Piesporter Goldtröpfchen, Riesling Kabinett, Mosel.  The intense nose and lively yet rounded flavors in the mouth make this a very strong value.  It is worth purchasing a bottle just to smell the wine.  The 2013 Weingut Vollenweider, Wolfer Goldgrube, Riesling Kabinett, Mosel shows a rich, persistent profile but it also leaves an unevolved impression.  It will take a few years to come around but should reward those who let their bottles slumber.  These wines were purchased at MacArthur Beverages.

2012 Reinhold Haart, Piesporter Goldtröpfchen, Riesling Kabinett, Mosel – $23
Imported by Rudi Wiest.  This wine is 100% Riesling sourced from vines on soils of clay and gray-blue slate.  Residual sugar 55 g/l. Alcohol 9%.  The intense nose was aromatic with rich floral aromas. Lovely!  In the mouth was a good lively start on the tongue with a hint of spritz before the glycerin infused flavors of petrol and stones.  While it had a rounder start the wine became more chiseled towards the finish. **** Now – 2022.

Mosel1

2013 Weingut Vollenweider, Wolfer Goldgrube, Riesling Kabinett, Mosel – $28
Imported by vom Boden.  This wine is 100% Riesling.  Residual sugar 70 g/l.  Alcohol 8.5%.  The color was a very light straw.  The wine began with lively and weighty flavors that settled down to pick up hints of petrol, ripeness and sweetness.  There was good persistence of flavor throughout with lemons and chalk towards the clean finish and a juicy aftertaste.  ***(*) 2017-2026.
