We highlight a great dry-tasting wine made by this up-and-coming Estate, which we featured in our latest Issue.

We already reported about young Julian Haart last year (see issue No 16 for further details) for his stunning first vintage. Since then, he has got hold of new parcels, including some in the Piesporter Schubertslay still planted with over 100 years old un-grafted vines
Julian's aim is to produce great Mosel dry-tasting wines, and his Wintricher Ohligsberg featured this month just underlines how great this style of wine can be in the hands of a gifted winemaker. Beyond this Ohligsberg, his whole collection is extremely high standards and highly recommended. This includes by the way also his fruity-styled wines, which are worth looking for.
Referred internally as Grand Cru by the Estate, this wine offers wonderful aromatics including zesty notes of grapefruit, lime, white orchard fruits and very fine smoky slate. It comes over as light yet complex and multi-layered on the palate. This is a style of wine you cannot find outside the Mosel, with its refined floral and smoky elements. The finish is hauntingly long, spicy and smoky. This is indeed a great Mosel dry wine! 2014-2026
