Reuscher-Haart (Piesport)

It was a bottle at Die Mosel, the super wine bar in Traben-Trarbach that brought us to Reuscher-Haart in Piesport. Mario Schwang is the latest generation and can trace his history back through 1919, when his great grandmother (a Haart – one of many in the village) married his great grandfather (a Reuscher) and further, all the way back to 1337! Today’s wines are dry & spicy, an electrifying helter-skelter Riesling ride from Piesport’s legendary vineyards including Domherr – the heart of Goldtröpfchen.
The Piesporter Falkenberg (Falcon Hill) Riesling Kabinett trocken is the epitome of Mosel Riesling: wet slate, purity, elegance, open and expressive.
