    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Fritz Haag, Brauneberger Juffer, Riesling, Grosses Gewächs, 2021

    Complex and clear-eyed. Salty and limey and with crystalline definition. Racy, with fine extract and a real sense of energy and detail. A taut structure at its core, with crisp and persistent fruit pepped up with a fresh but fully ripe acid character. It manages to maintain the racy finesse and pixelation of the vintage whilst not being in any way hard. Sadly, only about half a crop of GGs were produced in 2021.

    Fritz Haag

    Weingut Fritz Haag has for decades been in the top tier of quality German wine production, thanks largely to efforts of the late, legendary Wilhelm Haag, who headed up the Mosel VDP for nigh-on twenty years. Run by son Oliver Haag since 2005, he manipulates the exceptional stony grey/blue slate vineyard of the Juffer in Brauneberg, the finest part of this being a large parcel surrounding the sun dial (Sonnenuhr). Depending on the vintage, he employs a varying mixture of wooden fuders and temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks, the former helping complexity and finesse, the latter preserving freshness and intensity. These are some of the most elegant, pure and enticing wines in Germany.
