    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Schloss Lieser, Piesporter Goldtropfchen, Riesling, Auslese, 2016

    Thomas owns seven plots in the Goldtropchen vineyard and it required four passes through the vines to pick the material for this Auslese. There's a huge sense of power on the nose, ripe intense concentrated fruit notes, while on the palate there's real intensity but also vitality here, with tropical, extrovert fruit flavours given a corseted dancing quality, possibly by way of the highest levels of acidity in any of these wines.

    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.
