100% Riesling. Julian Haart apprenticed with Egon Müller and Klaus Peter Keller. That’s like learning to draw under da Vinci and Picasso. Julian’s first vintage under his own label was in 2010 and people immediately took notice. The estate has grown to a little more than four hectares and this is, roughly, where Julian wants it to stay. Part of the joy of winemaking, for Julian, is doing everything, just he and his wife Nadine, and maybe some friends. This is vineyard work, and winemaking, at the most human scale. Nearly everything must be done by hand – most of the vineyards are extremely steep and most of them are terraced. Even walking through them is a bit hazardous. The Goldtropfchen is from a small parcel of old vines and is juicy, fruit-forward, a touch sweet but also with a sharply delineated acidity, that feels like pulverized slate, to balance everything out. Julian makes Moselle wines of consequence and we are lucky enough to offer these to you.
