Tasting Notes


ABV:
8 %

Notes

Expansive and expressive on the nose, with yellow peaches, summer fruits and an overriding sense of sunshine, the product of the great south facing Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard, while on the palate the typical finesse of the site frames the almost opulent, creamy, summer fruit expression. Highly harmonious, pure pleasure.

Notes
There is considerable fermentative “Mosel stink” on the nose that only gradually lifts enough to reveal site-typical apple wreathed in honeysuckle and heliotrope. Perhaps not coincidentally, while picked at around the same 90 Oechsle as the other site-specific Haag Kabinetts of the vintage, this one exhibits the most striking sense of delicacy. “It may be,” Haag suggested, “that this is a Kabinett for the real Mosel Riesling freaks.” It’s also one for fans with patience. The feel here is subtly creamy and the long finish clears nicely to feature persistent inner-mouth floral perfume and stony underpinnings as well as succulent fruit reinforced by high but remarkably unobtrusive residual sugar.

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.
