94 points Wine Spectator: "Floral and slate aromas and flavors are accented by lime and peach in this delicate yet concentrated Riesling. The balance is impeccable. Finishes with a juicy aftertaste of lime and mineral. A terrific expression of place. Drink now through 2026. 100 cases imported. –BS" (12/2008)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Haart 2007 Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Spatlese smells of lightly caramelized peach, nut brittle, grilled pineapple, and sassafras. Vivid fruit skin tartness and juicy citrus and a sense of crushed stone suffusion offer a satisfying foil to the caramelized, toasted, an ...Read More »
From the winery: "From the Goldwingert we get wines that have a unique minerality and a fruity elegance. Due to the red slate the character of these Riesling wines is much more full-bodied and spicy than the classy fine wines from the blue slate terroir in Bernkastel and Wehlen...a perfect match for sushi. Try it with a spicy wasabi-soy-sauce; the sweetness of the wine cuts through the hot spice of wasabi."
According to importer Terry Theise: "A strong contender for wine of the vintage, and you shouldn’t dare to miss this sublime example of Rheingau Riesling at its best and most archetypal. Drier-seeming than the Kabinett, dense yet transparent, typically stoic and solid and durable, with 'purple' flavors. This is why Rheingau had the reputation it squandered, for this is magnificent Riesling, commanding and complex and endlessly unfolding everything of rock and flower and salt and sweet."

94 points Wine Spectator: "Passion fruit and citrus pâte de fruit aromas and flavors pick up grace notes of honey and spice in this concentrated, intense auslese. There's plenty of structure and it needs a little time to integrate. Fine length. Best from 2012 through 2038. (Web Only-2009)"93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale gold. Opulent aromas of wild plum, cinnamon and honeyed botrytis. The ripe tropical fruit flavors are animated by a discreet but persistent acidity that provides freshness on the palate. With a light touch and supple texture, the finish nonetheless displays rich, spicy character." (1/2009)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As i ...Read More »
