Yesterday the VDP presented their 2018 GGs in Berlin and I discovered a superb dry Mosel auction wine. If you attend the Mosel auction at the end of september and you're interested in Dry Mosel Riesling, this is worth considering to auction. I made no notes, but here is the TN from Mosel Fine Wines with 93/100
2016er Reinhold Haart "Piesporter Kreuzwingert" Riesling Trocken GG
"The 2016er Kreuzwingert GG, as it is referred to on the consumer label, was fermented and aged in used tonneau casks for two years before being bottled (hence the late AP number). It offers a gorgeous nose which reminds one of some top-class white Burgundies as there is a light reduction and a hint of wood presence. These scents are then joined by white peach, almond cream, grapefruit and minty herbs. The wine is straight and fully dry to start off, before a creamy texture and a hint of phenolic presence kick in. The finish is fully dry and beautifully intense. This wine is still best left alone for another couple of years in order to fully shine. It should then prove a beautiful, rounder expression of dry Mosel Riesling". 2023-2036
