Tasting Notes


ABV:
8 %

Notes

An immensely calm and composed Kabinett of crushed minerals and glorious sunny yellow fruits that fans out across the palate in a veritable slick of seamlessly fused fruit and minerals. Lithe and charming but also regal in length - Thomas Haag really showing off the qualities of this noble vineyard.

Notes
A cheesy fermentative residue somewhat clouds the nose, but from behind that emerge scents of fresh apple and sea breeze, anticipating the salinity, juiciness and crispness that dominate on a (for a Wehlener) surprisingly firm, lean palate. A garlanding of heliotrope and honeysuckle also runs through this entire performance, which culminates in bright, mouthwatering length. To an especially remarkable extent – though this is basically true of all the vintage 2017 Schloss Lieser Kabinetts – high residual sugar is successfully balanced out by efficacious acidity and extract. This will almost certainly be even finer in the future.

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.
