    Schloss Lieser, Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr, Riesling, Auslese, Goldkap, 2012

    This too has approximately 50% botrytised berries but you would be hard pressed to guess that. The first thing that that hits you is a pucker of savoury Brauneberger slate and a touch of smoke. Very clear and very pale in colour, quite closed initially yet highly elegant in structure and not heavy at all. Red apples, acacia honey, golden fresh apricots, elegantly defined and beautifully detailed. The total finesse of this means it is a Goldcap that whispers at you, but whispers at you for a very long time.

    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.
