    Fritz Haag, Riesling, QbA, Screwcap, 2021
    ABV:
    11%
    89/100
    Anne Krebiehl, Vinous
    The 2022 Riesling feinherb is the counterpart to the trocken Riesling from the same sites, just made in an off-dry style which here means 17g/L of residual sweetness. The absolutely appetizing nose shows plenty of peach and lemon. The palate is very strait-laced, zesty and vivid. The sugar disappears into the slatey saltiness and finishes dry. Immense but restrained charm. (Dry)

    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.
