Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Schloss Lieser, Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Riesling, Auslese, Goldkap, 2016

Fine yeasty notes mingle with slate and stones, producing a crystalline nose of great character and complexity. On the palate golden sun kissed flavours of pineapple and mango, spun sugar and yellow fleshed plums. More impressive than the young flavours today though is the absolute finesse of the structure. Polished and precise. Top drawer

David Schildknecht, Vinous

Ripe apple, quince and pineapple are alluringly garlanded in honeysuckle and heliotrope on a stunning nose, and the subtly oily, expansive palate is both lusciously fruited and brimming with striking inner-mouth perfume. The long, buoyant finish deploys a glaze of quince jelly over juicy fresh fruits, and the tang and citricity of pineapple lend animation and brightness to complement the wine’s sheer richness.

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.
