Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Schloss Lieser, Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr, Auslese, Goldkap, 2013

True to Juffer Sonnenuhr form this sparkles with delicate, slatey minerality, refined and fragile, with green apple, jasmine, white peach notes all etched into its surface. So pure and focussed, this simply doesn’t taste of botrytis - it just tastes intense. A stunner, long and laser-like.

Joel Payne, Vinous
Rich golden yellow. Seductive scents of apple blossom, white raisin and quince are given depth by a hint of honeyed botrytis. Rich, candied papaya fruit displays a velvety texture but minty acidity keeps the palate fresh. Dense yet light on its feet, with mineral salts providing spice on a very long, elegant finish. This Riesling is just plain gorgeous and clearly one of the finest Ausleses of the vintage.

Schloss Lieser

This Estate is one of the new stars of the Mosel that in Thomas Haag (son of Wilhelm at Fritz Haag), has one of Germany’s brightest up and coming winemakers. His prime plots of land are in the top due south-facing Niederberg Helden vineyard of Lieser. Though just a few hundred metres from his father’s Brauneberg vineyards, the heavy thicker set grey/blue slate of the Helden vineyard produces heavier wines that sometimes require more initial bottle bottle age before showing their true colours. Rigorous work in the vineyard and microscopic attention to detail in his cellars, guarantee a consistent production of good wines in poor years and outstanding wines in great years. In fact, Thomas can regularly claim to have the Mosel’s lowest yields. Since 2004, Thomas has been exploiting some vines in the famous Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr vineyard, given to him by his father Wilhelm Haag of the Fritz Haag estate.
