Karl Haidle

Württemberg | Stetten

“There’s a change coming. Württemberg is getting more and more interesting. We’re right in the middle of it,” says Moritz Haidle. It only takes a few minutes in his company to feel his sparking energy and ideas. But to stand in his vineyards, walk the old-cask-lined cellar built into the very hill those vineyards climb, and above all taste through his extraordinary, ever more focused, dynamic, and expressive wines is all the convincing you’ll need.

Karl Haidle 2017 Pulvermächer Riesling Grosses Gewächs

Pulvermächer is easily among the most revered and oldest planted vineyards in the Württemberg region. Mortiz claims that Haidle’s Pulvermächer vines are some of the oldest riesling vines in Stetten, “at least 50-years-old;” the clonal selection is unknown, if they are even clones at all. The soil here is “Kieselsandstein,” a mixture of pebbles, sandstone with quartz binded with silicic acid. Haidle farms this Grand Cru site organically, just like all the other sites. In a similar tradition to the Erste Lage Riesling, this wine is fermented with native yeasts in large neutral Stückfass, and then aged an additional 10-12 months resulting in a monumental Grosses Gewächs, and a great dry Riesling, year after year.
