Notes
Scents of lime, cassis and walnut oil usher in a firm but polished palate featuring invigorating tartness of juicy citrus, apple, white peach and seedy, thick-skinned dark berries. The impressively sustained finish perpetuates this wine’s brightness (surprising, considering its analytically very modest acidity) for invigoration and consummate refreshment. It further benefits from piquant, smoky nut oils, underlying wet stone, saliva-liberating salinity and a cooling sense of green herbal infusion. Here is the closest (two weeks after mid-July bottling) that any of the formidable 2016 Schloss Lieser Grosse Gewächse comes to lusciousness of fruit. But nobody could claim that it stints on mineral elements or lacks structural rectitude.

Schloss Lieser

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.
