Reinhold Haart Haart to Heart Riesling 2008

The Haart family has been in the wine industry for centuries. They offer European flavours and style with a lower price tag than many of their peers. They use more traditional methods for processing their grapes and they try to maintain the practises of their forebears.

Reinhold Haart Haart to Heart Riesling 2008

Masses of flinty floral aromas with quartz and fresh cut apples to match. At the moment this is so easy to chug down at lunch or later in the night. The juicy palate is balanced well by sweetness and more modern flavours but it doesn't have the texture or complexity of brilliant Rieslings. What you get here is great entry level drinking at cheaper prices. Don't get me wrong there is complexity and vibrancy running through the heart of this wine, it is just German Riesling can be so engaging it is scary. This one just falls behind just a touch. Buy now and drink over the next few years while you wait for the expensive age-worthy wines to evolve.
