Notes

Sadly, this is the only regular Auslese this year and quantities are miniscule! No botrytis just a selection of the best, ripest fruits they could find, fermented down to 90-95g/l residual sugar. Intensely youthful, compact and direct, with an electrifying, borderline hairraising acidity. High toned blue, red and tropical fruits, less unctuous in mouthfeel compared to the Spätlese, the Auslese is all on the tense, taut and laser-like line. One to buy and forget about for the next ten years.

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.
