“Ever-so-marginally off-dry, with scintillating freshness and explosive aromatics, this is everything we look for in classic German Riesling. And what a price!”

Weingut Haack is a relative newcomer to the ancient region of Nahe. It’s sandwiched between the tiny wine-growing villages of Rümmelsheim and Dorsheim, in the district of Bad Kreuznach. The new winery was founded in 2015 when each individual member of the Haack family (all four of them!) decided they’d had enough of their previous careers and answered a collective calling. They purchased an elegant Baroque farmhouse just west of the river, and with it eight hectares of old vines. The 2015 Alte Reben Riesling originates from vines closest to the farmhouse, planted in a mixture of red and green (yes, green!) slate soil. 2015 was their inaugural vintage, but those intelligent old vines have been in the game longer than the Haacks have, and perform accordingly. Ever-so-marginally off-dry, with scintillating freshness and explosive aromatics, this is everything we look for in classic German Riesling.
