“As readers may recall from last year’s article, Julian Haart ascribes to Dr. Manfred Prüm’s mantra that great, classic Kabinetten must be made from very old vines and higher yields, so as to capture that inherent, ethereal delicacy of true Mosel Kabinett. However, this was not possible in the very, very old vines that Julian has in the Schuberstlay, as these ancient, one hundred and ten year-old vines only produced twelve hectoliters per hectare in 2015!

"The 2015er Piesporter Schubertslay Kabinett is still quite reduced at this stage, something not unusual for wines harvested at a remarkably low 79° Oechsle. It is only after quite some airing that flinty scents of white flowers, mint and slate gradually emerge from the glass. The wine proves superbly pure and light on the palate yet full of mineral presence in its very long finish. This is a superbly fresh and classic Kabinett in the making."
