Tasting Notes


ABV:
7 %

Notes

Complex red apple fruits flowing from the glass, plus a touch of the reductive spontaneous fermentation aromas, below the line this is serious with deep ripe fruit and a delicate rudder of minerality. Fine textural minerality on display. Very moreish.

Notes
Concentrated pear and white peach run from the nose through the long, glowing finish, with subtle creaminess and interplay of stone and peach kernel lending allure on a near-weightless midpalate. Wet stone is omnipresent, and botrytis conveys a gorgeous sense of prominently perfumed honey to which hickory nut and peach kernel piquancy offers counterpoint. Yet there is downright infectious fresh juiciness here such as is seldom found in an Auslese.

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.
