The artist formerly known as Brauneberger Riesling, Oliver decided that from 2019 he would state the true single vineyard origin on the label, namely the fine blue slate Juffer. Lightly spontaneous aromas frame a classical Mosel fruit set below. Easy to taste and easy to love, a wine to put a smile on your face.
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.
